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.
I'd wholeheartedly recommend neocities.org
@danarel @sir mentioned that Sourcehut Pages are in the pipeline for https://sourcehut.org (See: https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss/%3CDFDDE491-5A75-4DF7-8F64-A5E4FD8BDC4C%40icloud.com%3E).
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?
@danarel not anything in particular, but this question was recently asked on Lobste.rs:
Hopefully this helps!
@freddyym ah, this is for choosing a generator. I use Jekyll already, I am just researching more hosting options.
sr.ht? Gitea? just 2 off the top of my head.
@freddyym Neither offering I don't think. Just repos.
I am currently using Netlify. I also tried Zeit.
@danarel sorry. What about Neocities?
@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.
@chris @cm1967 That's what I was able to pull up here: https://sitereport.netcraft.com/?url=https://www.thinkprivacy.ch
