Very informative article, thanks for sharing! I'm currently trying to do freelance and one of the things that trouble me the most is explaining hosting costs to my clients. For instance, I really enjoy using Firebase which, depending on the project, can lead to extremely cheap hosting costs, or it can be extremely expensive if you have really high web traffic. Explaining that to my clients has been really hard. Do you have any advices regarding the problem of discussing hosting costs to your clients? Also, do you have any hosting provider you have found to work well with your clients overall? Thank you very much!

Just tell them that they must provide hosting. You can recommend, but they are in charge of pricing and contracts.
