Free/Cheapest way to host a simple wepapp with gets huge traffic on 1-3 days in a month and no traffic for the rest of the days

Hi,

I am working on a simple webapp(Flask) which takes a user input and respond with some details based on the input. Think of this a results checker app where people can come and check their exam results. As exam results are one-off events, this webapp should handle a load of at-least 1000 requests per minute when results are out and once the results season is over. There will be very less/no traffic to this website.

Also, there will be one background job running in this webapp to scrape the web about latest results.

I am trying to find a cloud solution that can handle my use cases at very lost cost as this app will be a simple side project with no monetisation

Any help with some cost estimates would be really helpful.
