we don't officially encourage serving HTML from fargate containers, bc it is cheaper and faster via amplify hosting (static S3 pages and cloudfront). This is why I emphasize them as part of the APIs workflow.

however we do allow it - this is why Serverless Containers are enabled for Amplify Hosting. This is useful for, for example, hosting Next.js SSR.
