Hugo and self-hosting

I’m pretty sure I’ve just been kicked out of netlify without notice, for political reasons.
So it seems I’ll have to rely on self-hosting.
Does someone know about that, in short what to do from your site deployed in /public or wherever, the steps until people can reach an adress on the web ?
I mean, I know about buying a domain name, but the server aspect, not all.
Some documentation perhaps in relation with hugo sites would be nice :wink: so I can get started

Search for how to host plain html.

One of the big points of static site generators like Hugo is that the output is plain html/css/js.

That it is generated from Hugo has no impact on the hosting of the generated files.

I wrote articles on both of them: and raw HTML is another solution:
