I can recommend and set up a hosting environment for clients, i.e. environments they own and control themselves, but I would never host them myself. If they pay me separately to go check for updates I might do that, but I'd rather just not set up an environment that requires that. Setting up a script to easily do a Docker build based on Alpine Linux can save you a lot of trouble.

Static pages ftw here, if it can be hosted on S3/GitHub Pages/similar there's little need to worry about hosting.
