Hosting a demo project publically

I was about to start the APIs and Microservices tutorials on freecodecamp, in order to complete the challenges you need host your project somewhere public and provide the URL. What’s the best way to go about doing that? Everything I have done so far I just run locally. Thanks for your help.

The first lesson starts with:

Working on these challenges will involve you writing your code using one of the following methods:

  • Clone this GitHub repo and complete these challenges locally.
  • Use our starter project to complete these challenges.
  • Use a site builder of your choice to complete the project. Be sure to incorporate all the files from our GitHub repo.

If you do the first option, yes, you will have to find an online place to serve. But I think the second option will work - I think repl will work as a publicly accessible server for you. I haven’t used it before but I’ve seen others do it. If you really like working locally, you could always build it locally and then copy it into the repl.

Brilliant thank you, I have started doing it on repl and it is working fine.

Shared hosting avoids all the hassle of hosting your site. Paid web hosting already includes all the necessary components to keep your website running reliably. Hosting means customized software, uninterrupted power supply, reliable Internet channel, round-the-clock professional support.

There are different web hosting: shared hosting, VPS, Dedicated, etc. I use this service. And you?

That’s kind of a broad question and a little off topic from the OP. I would suggest opening a separate thread. I’m sure a google search would turn up a lot of good answers too.
