I've tried both Netlify and Surge to host a simple static page. I ended up with Surge because it was easier to setup https without having to move DNS servers.

Never heard of Surge but it looks quite ok 👌! What about the caching performance of Surge?

I am using Cloudflare to manage DNS so it takes care of the caching as well :) And since they provide you with SSL out of the box, in order to use https on your Surge site all you have to do is include a CNAME file containing https://www.your-site.com

Its meeloform.com, but nothing to see yet :)

I started a small project last week and was looking for the easiest/fastest way I could have a static site hosted somewhere. It will be a simple LP for the app that i'm building.
