Front-End Hosting: Vercel

Vercel Logo

Vercel are the creators of Next and other great projects and a deployment platform for Jamstack apps and serverless functions. Everything from them is honestly top-notch quality. For Next projects in particular, it is the platform of choice. As a deployment platform, the Github integration makes deploying websites a breeze, and their dashboard is stellar. For Jamstack projects, Netlify is also a good similar alternative. For serverless functions, Vercel supports JavaScript, TypeScript, Go, Python, and Ruby, whereas Netlify only supports JavaScript and Go. Both offer a generous free tier.

How to deploy to Vercel#

I simply import the GitHub project to Vercel, and merge feature branches into the master or main branch. Vercel automatically deploys the default branch.
