GitHub Pages: Public webpages freely hosted and easily published. Public webpages hosted directly from your GitHub repository. Just edit, push, and your changes are live; HostGator: A leading provider of web hosting. HostGator is a Houston-based provider of shared, reseller, virtual private server, and dedicated web hosting with an additional presence.
GitHub Pages and HostGator can be primarily classified as "Static Web Hosting" tools.
Some of the features offered by GitHub Pages are:
- Blogging with Jekyll
- Custom URLs
- Automatic Page Generator
On the other hand, HostGator provides the following key features:
- All HostGator shared hosting accounts come with CPanel
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- VPS and Dedicated Servers
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.
