|My Jekyll website is currently powered by a shared web hosting plan from HostGator with unlimited disk space & bandwidth (CloudFlare enabled).|
I've heard about Heroku which hosts websites for free and GitHub Pages. I won't exceed 2TB bandwidth/month nor do I need more than 300 MB space so I comply with both GitHub Pages & Heroku's limitations.
Which of the following will serve the website fastest to users (and with the max uptime)?
I think shared web hosting is slower than the other options. So, what should I use? Is there any other option which is better than all these?
Shared web hosting (I deploy via rsync)
Heroku with 1x dyno
My website gets about 15k pageviews/daily.
