Hi there @jdogcoder,

What you could do is upload your HTML website to your server using SFTP with FileZilla for example.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Alternatively, for a static website, you could use the DigitalOcean App Platform as it gives you the ability to host up to 3 free static websites:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
