Basically, static sites and project websites are hosted with github. If you want to host any blog sites then you can do with Jekyll too. Check my other posts for Jekyll.
To host any site, I am explaining here from Linux platform, you can use same method for windows too. follow these steps:
You can watch this video or follow the instructions below.
- login to your github account and create a new repository
- in terminal navigate to your website’s folder (where index.html is located)
- run the following github commands:
- now lets add the remote origin from github
** replace lakshmanbasnet with your username ** replace test.git with your repository name
the default branch is master, for hosting websites with Github we need to push our files to gh-pages branch. Remember you need to push to this branch since any files pushed to master branch won’t be generated for websites, if you push to gh-pages branch, github will automatically generate website for you.
lets make new branch gh-pages with command:
- lets navigate to our gh-pages branch
- now every thing is ready, just hit push command and enter your credentials when asked
after you have pushed your file to github repo, goto your github repo in your browser
in settings scroll down to find the link for your website, the link will be something like https://lakshmanbasnet.github.io/test/
congratulations your site is live now
