Any recommendations for the best static site hosting? Free to really cheap suggestions welcome.

I don’t use github, and I don’t care much for gitlab, so I’d like to avoid those.

@danarel Probably check out NearlyFreeSpeech. They are barebones (no/very little hand holding) but also inexpensive. Data storage costs can get you though.

@danarel @sir mentioned that Sourcehut Pages are in the pipeline for sourcehut.org (See: lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht-di).

It may be worth keeping in mind for when it comes out (afaik there is no planned release date as of yet).

@switchingsoftware @danarel @codeberg the problem that I have and didn't find solution (not to much time searching) is one that can be shared. I mean in a raspberry will be the static site for a collective. how to make for different people to publish and not to use privative software. Does anybody know?

@ona @switchingsoftware @danarel you could create an org with all your members on codeberg, and give all contributors write access to the org's pages repo.

There are many other possible options, of course.

@danarel not anything in particular, but this question was recently asked on Lobste.rs:

lobste.rs/s/h491m8/what_static

Hopefully this helps!

@freddyym ah, this is for choosing a generator. I use Jekyll already, I am just researching more hosting options.

@freddyym Neither offering I don't think. Just repos.

I am currently using Netlify. I also tried Zeit.

@danarel Are you looking for actual hosting of the sites or static site generators?

@cm1967 Hosting. I use Jekyll myself and don't plan to switch from that. But I want to explore more hosting options that can easily create builds based on Git pushes.

@danarel I love Jekyll! I'll ask some of my web developer friends to see if they have any ideas on the hosting front.

@cm1967 @danarel Take a look at Netlify. I've been hosting chriswiegman.com on there for a bit and it's been great, and free.

@chris @cm1967 That's where I am now. I however am not a huge fan of their use of Google and Amazon servers sometimes.

Though right now it seems I am on Digital Ocean.

@danarel @cm1967 I'll agree on the servers. I wish I could find a good alternative for that one. I haven't looked at where they have my own now, though, that's interesting you were able to track it down to DO like that.
