    It's easier to deploy an application that has its source code hosted on GitHub or GitLab. Render connects with GitHub or GitLab to deploy your apps and websites automatically on every push to your project. This is very useful, as you don't have to manually deploy every time you make a change. You can either connect GitHub or GitLab or both.

    You'll need to download and install Python3 to your local machine. It's better to set up a virtual environment for the application.

    Recently, I came to know that Heroku is going to stop supporting free services. I have almost all the projects running in Heroku and I never tried any services. Many people pointed out that Render is the best free alternative to the Heroku. So I am giving it a try by hosting a FastAPI application. Render seems to directly support python frameworks like Flask, Django etc as their documentation mentions them. But we should be able to host FastAPI app as it supports building any python app, we just need to change the starting command. Let's get into it without wasting another minute.
