How do you deploy your Gatsby website?

funbeedev profile image Fum ・1 min read

I'm planning to build a Gatsby based website. I'm new to web dev and its related jargon so I'm still doing research on how this will all come together.

I have a WordPress site I host with Hostinger and need to upgrade my plan to a VPS to be able to host a React-based site. But before I make a decision I wanted to know how others deploy Gatsby sites.

Has anyone used providers that are typically known for hosting CMS based sites for deploying their Gatsby site? Like Hostinger, Namecheap, Bluehost, HostGater, etc..

Or how do you deploy your Gatsby site?

Thanks.

Website built with Gatsby is static site, it's very easy to deploy.
You can check this link gatsbyjs.com/docs/deploying-and-ho..., and choose one of them.
I use netlify, easy dan free..

No need for shared hosting paid plans you can deploy React/Gatsy websites for free. Here are some free top serverless hosts.

Netlify
Vercel
Heroku
Github Pages
Surge
AWS S3

I have a dumb question. You say these are free methods to deploy Gatsby websites, yet nothing in AWS is free to my knowledge. How does this work?

You should search for "Continuous delivery" or "CI/CD". It will cover all your current and future questions.

Hosted on hostinger with the simple web hosting plan. You just need to upload it to your public folder.

Was it a shared hosting plan or VPS?

A Shared hosting plan. But at the end of the day, when your gatsby website is builded, it's just a simple static website, so you can host it wherever you want.
