Hosting SSG outside creator's intended cloud (Next.js)

How was the experience, especially if you Next.js website is not only static site, but also has API functions?

Actually, even if static site, I felt that SPA experience is missing on navigation, if next export.

In short, I don't want to move from Netlify to Vercel.

No, you don't have to use Vercel even for API routes. It should work just as well hosted anywhere else.

next export should give you a static SPA with the pages pre-rendered. If your browser loads on navigation, make sure you're using the Link component from next/link.
