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.

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 ....
I'm trying to set up a Kubernetes cluster on some VPS. So I'm managing the hosting software aspect, but not the hardware.
I'll be honest, it's probably not worth the trouble. There's a lot of trouble.
But it's really a lot cheaper than hosted Kubernetes offering, from what I can tell. And it's a good way to learn.
For the longest time, my default was DigitalOcean's $5 droplets. However, I have many projects that never see the light of day, and I started to resent paying the monthly fee for all those idle droplets. Once DigitalOcean introduced Kubernetes clusters, I containerised all my side projects, and now I run anything I need on the same $30 cluster.
