Docusaurus supports static site hosting services such as Cloudflare, GitHub Pages, Netlify, Vercel, and others. I have used these and other hosting services. My choice is Cloudflare.
This website is using Cloudflare for a Content Delivery Network (CDN), Domain Name System (DNS) and website deployment. Cloudflare builds websites and deploys them when VScode pushes changes from the Local Repository to the Central Repository, Cloudflare then automatically builds the website and deploys to the Internet.
Benefits deploying projects with Cloudflare are:

When the pull request team and stakeholders are satisfied the updated production changes are ready for deployment, the repository guardian deploys the updated production version of the website to a private preview Internet website for stakeholders to preview and give feedback. When the stakeholders are satisfied with the updated production version, the repository guardian deploys the updated production version of the website to the Internet
