  1. Thanks for such a great article!!!

    Any reason why AWS S3 is not mentioned in the list? We can use the free tier for an year.

    1. Thanks. Glad you like it. 🙂
      I guess I didn’t include services like AWS and Azure because the complete step-by-step process of configuring and deploying a React app with AWS or Azure is too big to include in this article. Separate articles for them will be great to explain everything adequately.

  2. Thanks a lot. I used Surge to host my app. Honestly I had never heard of Surge until I read this article and I was having trouble hosting my app everywhere from Netlify, GitHub Pages, and Heroku! I this really helped me.

  3. Hi, I’ve created a CI configuration file on the GitLab like this but GitLab throws error with `mv: cannot stat ‘build’: No such file or directory` (full CI job log is here).

    Where am I doing wrong?

  4. Hey Fatih,
    Seeing the CI Job log, I guess you are using the above `.yml` file to deploy a Next.js project which is causing an error because unlike a React project which creates a production build in a folder named `build`, Next.js creates a folder named `.next` . The above .yml file works for React project.

    Vercel would be best for a Next.js project.
    Let me know if you have any other questions.

  5. I did as per your instructions for deployment on github. But my local hosting doesn’t show css styling though it’s working perfectly on the github pages.. please let me know what I can do to fix it. My local react-application is mirrored/linked with github repository.
