Hosting: Netlify or S3?

Since 2019 I have had this this website hosted on S3/Cloudfront at around $2.50/month.

But Netlify provides an awesome developer experience with integrated zero config deploy. And - honestly - it would feel good to have my personal website extricated from the great giant. I am using 0.001% of AWS capabilities.

  • Netlify costs? is still the unknown
  • My motivation to deal with domain migrations? zero!
