Is it really necessary for our web pages to be served from Apache hardware? If so, why?

I understand why we want to control the canonical source, but do we really need to own web
server?

A concern, for me, would be if hosting on GitHub Pages meant that we could not easily switch
to another host.

Chris,

The easy summary is that Apache would like to keep apache sites being served by apache controlled
hardware.

Github serving pages fails that test.
