What is the platform you consider the easiest to deal with and is also easy on the money for deploying multiple side projects?

Usually, for static content, Github Pages is a solid choice. It's free, fast and is loaded with goodies. If you do modern web app development with JamStack, Github Pages is enough most of the time.

For remote procedures, I usually use Zeit / Vercel. They have a free tier and cheap prices, though their product catalog might be lacking at times.

Jamstack, funny word and hype for something that is basically what we did in the 90s

Emil Moe There are a lot of things getting a fresh start these days. VR, ray tracing, etc. I never knew that something like JamStack already existed in the 90, though. Do you have a link or key word?

I am oldschool so I got my own infrastructure. not really hard to do and with a bit of configuration it's possible to keep it safe and maintainable. And I can run my own virtual clusters in the background. lxc, kvm, rkt etc to the rescue so to speak.

but .... well you can say one of my side-projects is my infrastructure. If you're not interested in the overhead it provides (which I do understand not everyone really wants to know everything - like I do).

I don't know maybe you can also access free shared hosting services ;D ....
