How can I keep my server always awake?

I have a website hosted on Repl.it and I'm impressed with the version control and ability to host actual production websites.

I recently installed an SSL certificate and now I'm noticing that when I go to my URL (which is hosted to Repl.it using Google Domains -> DNS redirect), the end user sees:

REPLIT ROBOT IMAGE - "Waking up the requested REPL"
Node.JS Console as commands run and load...

Finally, the page shows.

It just doesn't seem 'production quality'. I can move it to FireBase, but because of the convenience of the version control here, I'd like to keep it hosted here if I can prevent it from going to sleep.

Can that be done?

Thanks!

Yes, just use something like uptimer bot, which is free
