Netlify VS Digital Ocean App Platform


Netlify is a cloud platform that is designed to help developers build and deploy modern, high-performance websites and applications. With Netlify, you can deploy your code to a global network of servers with a single command, and the platform will take care of the rest, including provisioning servers, scaling your application to meet demand, and providing security and compliance. Netlify supports a wide range of technologies and frameworks, including popular static sites generators like Jekyll and Hugo, as well as serverless functions and APIs.

One of the key features of Netlify is its focus on continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD). With Netlify, you can set up automatic deployments whenever you push code to your Git repository, and the platform will build and deploy your application for you. This makes it easy to iterate quickly on your code and deploy changes automatically, without having to manually build and deploy your application every time you make a change. Netlify also provides a number of tools and services to help you manage your deployments, including database and file storage, analytics and monitoring, and custom domain management.
