I would be very grateful if you could tell me what options there are for free hosting (and whether there are any at all), by analogy with GitHub Pages, only with server capabilities (sending / receiving data, working with databases, nodejs, etc.).

Is there something similar?
Thank you in advance.


Now cheap vps (1 cpu / 1 gb ram / 15 gb disk) cost $2 per month - imho it's much more convenient, docker stuck it in and do what you want.

I had experience with two of them, these are 000webhost and awardspace. The first is a hosting provider for the poor, sleeps an hour a day and gives you his subdomain, in general, everything you need for an average site is enough.
Avardspace also has a free tariff and a lot of paid ones, but it has a problem that it can redirect too many times and all you have to do is take it down clean. For some python projects, these are heroku and pythonanywhere.
Both are quite good, but the second one is more convenient to configure, just fill in the file and everything else in the console.


Squarespace is a popular website creation platform that does not require any technical skills. It offers beautiful professional templates and an intuitive drag and drop interface.

They offer a limited 14-day free trial of website hosting. This gives you access to their website builder so you can try out its features. Your site will not be publicly available unless you sign up for a paid plan.
Paid plans start at $12 per month. Each plan comes with a free custom domain, unlimited bandwidth, storage, and ready-made website templates. To learn more, see our article on Squarespace vs WordPress with pros and cons, as well as a comparison of features.

Google Cloud Hosting
Google offers a wide range of free website hosting solutions for small businesses and students. It comes with all the powerful features you can expect from a top-notch company like Google.

Since their plans are based on a usage fee, this is an easy place for students to get started. Google offers a free $300 loan for new customers, which will last you for a whole year if you are just looking for free hosting for test sites.
You can use Google Cloud to host any type of website, and they even offer WordPress on Google Compute Engine.

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Amazon Web Services, also known as AWS, supports some of the most popular websites in the world. While it's not easy to use for small businesses, it's a great platform for students and developers who are just getting started.
Amazon offers 12 months of free and always free products on its free AWS tier, which is by far one of the best free hosting sites for testing.

Students can use Amazon's powerful platform to learn and master their development skills. We hope this article has helped you find the best free hosting for your next project.
