I'd also suggest Netlify. Azure Strorage has no free tier which is a bit of a turn off for me. (I only know of this because it impacts Azure Functions. It's a super minor cost, but still bugs me a bit. ;)

How much did your pricing look like with azure storage? It appears to be a few pennies for what I am looking at. (which i get is not free, but i am curious what you found)

I want to say roughly 60 cents a month. Which to be fair is incredibly cheap, but when it comes to building quick demo sites, I don't want to have to start thinking about that stacking up over time. I'm really surprised Microsoft doesn't just have a free tier for super small, low usage sites like your docs, demos, etc. The fact that I can deploy a site for a conference presentation or blog post, whatever, to Netlify and just not worry about it makes me much more inclined to use it to host stuff.

Thanks for the feedback. It would be nice to have a free option here - and yes, there are credits with the free azure trial, but seems like you would want (and i can see it too) an option for a free hosted site.

Especially, static sites. 😅
