We use Netlify to host static websites.

The reasons for choosing Netlify over GitHub Pages are as follows:

  • Netfily can bind multiple domain names, while GitHub Pages can only bind one domain name
  • With Netfily, the original repository can be private, while GitHub Pages free tier requires the original repository to be public

In addition, in order to use CDN, we use Netlify DNS.

Hey Howie, Github Pages allows for using a private repository if the user or team is on one of their paid plans. Adding a "free tier" conditional may help users who stumble across this.
