Thank you for the response! I just installed Sanity in my App Which serverless framework should I use?. Netlify serverless or AWS serverless or any other option? My preference is to start with cheap pricing. I want to generate some sales so I can afford expensive options 3. Which is the cheap video hosting from all these 3 options?
