I guess this is might be easier to set up but you could get something similar on AWS by posting to an S3 bucket and putting pages into CloudFront CDN. Adding CodeCommit could automate deployment for $1/month or you could write a script to publish new pages for free.

You’ve just reinvented netlify without the polish. But the polish is what makes it great. I’ve moved a few websites off S3 to netlify and the level of integration they offer is great. DNS, TLS certs via let’s encrypt, preview builds for PRs, ..., that’s exactly what I’m willing to pay for. And I know that if they make a business move I don’t like, I can always move off again. No lock-in except the polish.
