How should I configure Netlify (or equivalent service) for hosting as a freelancer?

Often, customers ask me about hosting if they do not yet have a preferred hosting provider.

I have been interested in using Netlify to host JAM stack sites, but I have not used it in an independent context (only for personal secondary projects).

The options I see are:

  • Hosting all the sites in the central account
  • Setting up separate accounts for each of my clients and administering them myself
  • Pointing to my clients at the Netlify address and asking them to manage it themselves

I suppose that these forms of configuration are generalized to other similar services, but I have not investigated the differences extensively.

I do not know if Netlify has any terms related to this way of working, but I have not been able to find any.
