Thanks heaps. Duly bookmarked and hearted and unicorned ;-).

But I wonder could you clarify "for free"? What is free exactly?Is this free deployment, and/or free hosting?

It is both, you can use qovery to deploy on your aws acccount.
Else you can use the community plan and have free hosting for approx 3 months, but you can earn more free credits as well to make your project run longer.

How are credits earned? It looks like it's hosted on AWS right and Qovery is just a deployment too. So it's an AWS community plan that has 3 months? Am curious about free/cheap hosting options for community projects indeed (clubs and societies with no real budget).

No, you don't need a AWS account on Qovery's community plan.
The community plan hosts it on Qovery itself, you don't need to pay anything.

Check out this on how to earn credits:

Thanks. They aren't very clear on what the initial $45 credit buys. Loosely suggest writing two articles wins a years worth of credit but an article earns you between $50 and $300 of credit, so maybe $5 credit runs around 6 months?

I asked them ,they said that $45 credits will last approx 3 months. They have mentioned the cost per second but i forgot where it was. Anyway you can join their discord and ask there.
