We use Netlify for https://standups.io and we still are not paying a penny for their service. It works for our different environments, creates deploy previews out of every branch, supports split testing, and we even use it as a CI for our ReactJS app using Cypress! It's so painless and reliable, we just love it.

Can you explain more? I mean, I see that you're essentially a video service. Don't you have a backend? Don't people login? How do you handle all that on a static site host?

Sure, happy to expand on it.

You're right, as a video service, we cannot do everything through them, we use our own encoder service with AWS Lambda, and manage users through a NodeJS app. And Netlify is a very important part of our stack, as it holds our main client app, which connects to these other parts of our stack.

Btw, congrats on TalkJS! Looks amazing.
