Firebase vs Firebase Hosting: What are the differences?
Developers describe Firebase as "The Realtime App Platform". Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds. On the other hand, Firebase Hosting is detailed as "Production-grade web content hosting". It is production-grade web content hosting for developers. With a single command, you can quickly deploy web apps and serve both static and dynamic content to a global CDN (content delivery network). You can also pair it with Cloud Functions or Cloud Run to build and host microservices.
Firebase can be classified as a tool in the "Realtime Backend / API" category, while Firebase Hosting is grouped under "Static Web Hosting".
