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.

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.
