2. Good support
3. Custom domains with SSL
4. Takes care of most important backend stuff (forms and webhooks)
5. Functions (Lambda with zero config needed)
6. Abstracts server stuff like [redirects](https://www.netlify.com/docs/redirects/)
Lambda and redirects are the best. I can just put my scripts in a folder and they automagically work.
In my LinkedIn profile my website address is not clickable, so people are copying it to browser. This gives me bogus source data, but with Netlify I can do a one-liner:
If you go to [patrykkalinowski.com/li](https://patrykkalinowski.com/li) from my LI profile, you'll end up on patrykkalinowski.com/?utm_source=linkedin&utm_medium=profile
From my reading of https://www.netlify.com/pricing/#forms you will need to pay $19/month/site (!) just to collect the data from 1000 form submissions. By the time you have a couple of sites like this the price is already way too much for me and anyone else with basic backend knowledge. I hope I've misunderstood.
It's $0,019 per submission, which I think is a fair price if you're actually sending that amount (and making money from it). It would costs you much more to build unless. That said, for personal (free) use there are a lot of alternative options.
They give you the ability to have 2,000 contacts in the system at one time for free.
