Software Alternatives & Reviews

Netlify just sent me a $104K bill for a simple static site

  1. An open-source, hassle-free, self-hostable Heroku & Netlify alternative.

    Hetzner or DigitalOcean with Coolify [0] works great, it's like an open source Heroku that runs on any host, you get git push to deploy, and a bunch of other features built in. It only works on one machine at a time though so it's not like a CDN but for small sites, it's great. [0]

  2. Deploy blazing fast static sites and serverless functions.
    Cloudflare Pages is a layer on top of Workers with some Sounds like you're thinking of Cloudflare still as just the DNS/DDoS protection it started out with. I'm not that familiar with Netlify, but just going on your description: - Cloudflare Pages: - Cloudflare R2:

  4. The open source infrastructure as code tool.

    CloudFlare pricing is indeed positively ridiculous. At OpenTofu[0] we’re using CloudFlare R2 to host the providers and modules registry[1]. Bandwidth is free, you only pay for requests. This already would be great, but there’s more - you only pay for requests that actually hit R2. So with an almost 100% cache hit ratio, we barely register any billable requests. Recently someone decided to load test us and generated ~1TB of traffic over 1-3 days. All but a few of these requests were cached, so the whole situation probably cost us less than a cent.

    There's also ( but I'm not sure if they have similar policies as Netlify.
