Firebase Hosting

Firebase Hosting is built for the cutting edge web developer. Static sites are more intense than ever in recent times with the ascent of frontend JavaScript frameworks such as Angular and static generator tools such as Jekyll. Regardless of whether you are deploying a basic application or a mind-boggling Progressive Web App, Hosting gives you the foundation, features, and tooling customized for publishing and managing static sites.

The Hosting service gives you a subdomain on the domain. With the Firebase CLI, you can publish local files from your personal computer to your Hosting server. Documents are served over an SSL connection from the nearest edge server on Firebase global CDN.

Although hosting static content, Firebase Hosting offers lightweight design alternatives for you to have the ability to construct sophisticated Progressive Web Apps. You can, without much of a stretch, modify URLs for client-side routing or set up custom headers.
