Hi there,

Actually, if you have a paid application already and you wanted to add a static website to it, it will not add any additional costs. So there is not need to deploy two separate applications.

Here is a very good video demo on how to do that:

Note that this is with a Laravel backend but the setup would be quite similar.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
