      What is HexoPress?

      HexoPress is a web layer that authenticates the user with google, takes their blog posts from a folder in their google drive, generate a static blog out of it and serves them at a URL.

      What is Netlify?

      Netlify is smart enough to process your site and make sure all assets gets optimized and served with perfect caching-headers from a cookie-less domain. We make sure your HTML is served straight from our CDN edge nodes without any round-trip to our backend servers and are the only ones to give you instant cache invalidation when you push a new deploy. Netlify is also the only static hosting service with integrated continuous deployment.
