Final thoughts

I'm mostly use VERCEL for any front-end application as well as medium-level backend apps.

Use HEROKU for any back-end applications. If you want add authentication in your app then Firebase is best choice, it does not require any credit card to create account. You can use your google account to login. I've some React / Node.js apps running on Firebase and it's very easy to manage.

Other websites are also useful when you are deploying static sites. But I recommend you to go through each website and find which one suits your project.
