Cloudflare Pages - All Set to Beat Netlify

March 10, 2021

Netlify is the first choice for most developers when it comes to hosting static sites and web applications.

Not anymore!!!

With the most generous free tier, Cloudflare Pages is all set to compete with Netlify on this front. And, I believe, it can be the next number 1 choice to host JAMstack sites.

Cloudflare Pages offer default pages.dev URL whereas Netlify offers netlify.app. Meaning, if you’re not willing to add a custom domain to your app, it will look something like your-github-repo.pages.dev in Cloudflare Pages.

However, Netlify lets you change the default subdomain name.

That’s it.

Let’s see what happens to the Cloudflare Pages in the near future.
