My static website is built with Pelican and published on Github pages behind Cloudflare. Basically, free, simple and easy.

I've put it up on Apache and S3 before, but I figured, why not put it all on Github and then I don't have to worry about it.

You als configured cloudflare to handle the caching? I think that github pages deploys to Cloudfront?

You have to use a custom domain, but yes. Cloudflare gives me SSL and caching. I haven't seen any slowness, and updates show up in seconds.
