So we can choose which page to use server side render?
It that is the case, do we need two deployments? one for static hosting, another for server side rendering

Correct, you can! Only one deployment is needed. In your server side logic it's perfectly possible to choose which pages can and should be prerended and which not.

I can put together an example if you'd like, but that will require me some time :)

That's great. I was planning to opt in SSR for my website. Thanks for the answer. If you have the time luxury I would love to have an example 😁
