GitHub Pages VS Vercel

GitHub Pages

GitHub Pages is a static site hosting service that is designed to host your personal, organization, or project pages directly from a GitHub repository. With GitHub Pages, you can create a simple website by committing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files to a repository on GitHub, and GitHub will automatically serve the website from a URL that is based on your GitHub username or the name of your repository.

GitHub Pages is a quick and easy way to create a simple, static website, and it is especially useful for hosting documentation, project pages, and other types of websites that do not require a dynamic back-end. You can also use GitHub Pages to host websites that are generated by static site generators, such as Jekyll, and you can customize the look and feel of your website by creating a custom theme.
