Host Webflow Site on Heroku for FREE


#1

Hi All,

Has anyone tried to host a one page Webflow website on Heroku? In other words, downloaded the HTML + CSS code from Webflow and created a free instance on Heroku?


#2

Heroku is not free. It can only run a certain number of hours every day before it shuts down and ask you to upgrade.


#3

you get what you pay for.

Also - from their pricing page

“SLEEPS AFTER 30 MINS OF INACTIVITY”

also this

“USES AN ACCOUNT-BASED POOL
OF FREE DYNO HOURS”

I suggest using Amazon S3 instead. It costs $0.10 a month for my created in Webflow site which has about 70,000 page loads monthly.

@samliew Thanks for the info. Will try that too :slight_smile:

FYI, this method works pretty will for static pages on heroku: How to deploy a static website to Heroku Raw

Quick update. The method works pretty well so far for single page websites. Linkouts to other pages do not work as of now, but I’m sure that can also be adjusted. Did anybody find a solution for multi-page sites?
