I had a vague recollection that Mercury's website is currently generated
offline and then only the static HTML files (and tarballs) are served from
the host. If that's the case, I recommend Google Cloud Storage which can
host static websites:
https://developers.google.com/storage/docs/website-configuration I use it
for all my static sites.
The Mercury website is probably small enough to fall under the free usage
quota (5 GB). If not, the per-GB fees are reasonable. I like it because
setting up a new site can be done quickly from the command line:
$ gsutil -m cp -R example_site/ gs://example.com
$ gsutil setwebcfg -m index.html gs://example.com
