site5 domain github page

Few days earlier, I tried pointing my sub domain of site 5 site to github page site, but it was really confusing, so in this post I am trying to write out how I solved the issue.

  • now lets add two new CNAME records, while adding new CNAME record the record name will be our subdomain and address will be our default github username followed by for me its, find yours and enter it. The two new CNAME will have following formats:

Record name:
TTL:(Time to Live) the time period for new record enforcement, the least the site can accept the faster it would be , in my case I would give 60
Host: (replace lakshmanbasnet with your username)

Record name:
TTL: 60

After this, the setup is done. Make sure you have added CNAME into your github page site for the desired sub domain. In my case my CNAME file contains:
