I have used all except GCP. And the one-line answer is simplicity. Heroku, Vercel, or Netlify all helps you get going in a couple of minutes. Just a few clicks and even your CD is set up. Also, these will scale if your site has too much traffic. But yes small applications makes sense with these, But when you are going for larger systems, micro services etc then AWS, Azure, or GCP makes sense.
