Some *free* options to host static sites with cloud scalability are Google
App Engine and Heroku. Host on both to distribute the load, and balance the
free tiers of each. Throw Cloudflare in front and you get varnish caches
and dns record control for free as well. I'm using this setup for a few
sites of mine. Works well and for a static site, it's blazing fast.
