I'm considering hosting our new marketing website for a software product using Github Pages. The website will be quite small, and we expect low amounts of traffic. We've been using shared hosting (like HostMonster) in the past, but the ability to simply push your git changes to Github to publish changes is very appealing. Of course, Github pages is free so I imagine there has to be downsides.
If I switch to using Github Pages instead of traditional shared hosting, what am I missing out on (other than the fact that the site must be static)? Are they less reliable?
In my situation, the site I want to host is a marketing site for a software application that we are hosting on Github.
