Hosting & Deployment Platforms features

Compare the features of the Hosting & Deployment Platforms to help you choose the right one for your needs.

FeatureFirebaseAWS Amplify


What runs under-the-hood.

Google Cloud (GCP)


Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)

Continuous deployment

Imagine an automatic update system for your website. This feature automatically deploys any changes you make to your code (usually from Git) to your live website.

Automated builds from Git

An easy integration with popular Git repository hostings like Github, GitLab and Bitbucket.
Need to use additional CI/CD service

Instant rollbacks to any version

Easy way to promote any previous build to production without the need to revert commits or data changes.
Requires configuration

Site previews for every push

New build with a unique URL for every commit and pull request.

Compatible with all Static Site Generators


Events triggered on successful, canceled, or failed build.
Email, AWS Chatbot chat notifications, or AWS Console Mobile App push notifications

Team Management

Create team account and invite your teammates to the project.

Custom domains

Bring your own domain and connect to the project.

Automatic HTTPS

SSL certificate generated automatically.

Rewrites & Redirects

HTTP 301 or 302 redirects from one URL to another. Rewrites work similar to reverse proxy and allow to send user to different URL without modifying the original URL.

Password Protection

An easy way to restrict access to the website for users who don't have password. Useful if you work on a new site and want to keep it in secret.

Skew Protection

Skew Protection ensures client and server versions stay synchronized during deployments, preventing compatibility issues.

Free Tier


Number of projects you can have in Free Tier on one account.



Build Minutes

The amount of time your build scripts can run per month.

1 000 minutes /month

for the first 12 months

Concurrent builds

How many builds can be run at the same time?


The amount of data that is transferred to or from the CDN.

360 MB /day

15GB /month

for the first 12 months

Team Members

The number of users (team members) that can be added to the CMS.

Build Time Per Deployment

Build have to finish within the limited time. If not it will fail due to timeout.

30 minutes

Can be increased by setting a custom _BUILD_TIMEOUT env variable.

Build Memory Limit (in MiB)

The amount of memory that is allocated by system to build process. Some operations like image processing are expensive and might require more memory. For Node.js it is max-old-space-size setting.

2048 MiB

Can be increased to 8196 MiB

Paid Plans

Max team members before switch to custom pricing



Git contributors have to be Team Members

In order to triger build, Git contributor has to be a paid team member.


Serverless Functions (API)

Small pieces of code that run on-demand without managing servers, typically used for API endpoints.
Node.js, Java, Go, .NET Core, Python

Edge Functions

Serverless functions that run closer to the user, reducing latency and improving performance.

Background Functions

Code that runs in the background on the platform to perform tasks that don't require immediate user interaction.


Schedule tasks to run automatically at specific times or intervals. Useful for automating repetitive website maintenance tasks.
Schedule functions

Developer Experience


Command Line Interface tools that allow developers to perform tasks and manage the tool via the command line.


Additional plugins or add-ons that can enhance the functionality of the platform.

Environment Variables

Secret configuration settings for your website that change based on where it's deployed (dev, staging, production).

Build Logs

Track the progress and results of website builds for troubleshooting

Build Canceling

Ability to stop a build process that is currently running. This frees up resources and lets you make changes to your website faster by stopping builds you don't need anymore.
