You make a static project (not a database operation) and you want to go live and publish it on a host. First of all, you need to buy a domain and host, right? No longer needed. In this article, I will tell you how you can get your static projects live without buying a host and domain.
Heroku (Both static projects and dynamic projects)
I want to start with the first most popular heroku. Heroku is a partially free cloud-based platform service. What does it mean? One of the biggest reasons why Heroku is popular is that it supports not only static projects, but also projects that you create dynamically. In other words, it is a platform where you can publish your pros that you have prepared in programming languages such as php, node, java. Since I do mostly static works, I do not use this site excessively. But I published a project of mine on this site. You can take a look at it by clicking here.
Another site is Netlify. On this site, you can only publish your static projects. It is simpler and easier to use than heroku. It pulls project files from storage services such as github, gitlab and bitbucket. It provides a partially free service on this site. The only downside is that it gives a monthly traffic quota of 100gb for the free package and asks for $20 for an additional 100gb. You can click here to get more detailed information about Netlify’s free and paid packages.
Vercel also offers a similar service for netlify. The only difference is that it offers the clone template service for free. Creating a next.js project stored on Github takes only 10 seconds in vercel. I love this feature of Vercel.😁
Yes. We have arrived at our last site, surge. My favorite part of this site is that there is no need to register. You can push your project directly without leaving the terminal environment, and your project is directly transferred to the server environment and gives you a domain. It doesn’t take you 5 seconds to transfer your project to the server environment. I am using surge to see how the project I have made instantly looks on mobile. Then I enter the url given to me from the phone. In its free package, it provides unlimited publishing, a limited number of projects (I couldn’t find out how many) and simple ssl. You can view the features of the paid package by clicking here. But I know you’ll stop looking when I tell you the price is $30 a month. 😂
In this article, I told you about the sites where you can publish your static projects without a host or domain, completely free of charge. I hope it was useful content. See you in my next blog post…
