Host your website on Github Pages
1min read

Did you know that you can host a website on GitHub, for free ?


No ? Then let me show you.


You need to create a repository named yourUsername.github.io and make it public.


yourUsername.github.io In my case, the repo must be named lachouri.github.io .


Then, simply to test it, I am going to create an index.html file with a bit of code and I will push it on github.

  • Initialize the repo with git init
  • Create a commit with git add . and git commit -m "First commit"
  • Create the main branch with git branch -M main
  • Link your local repo to the git repository with git remote add origin https://github.com/yourUsername/yourRepo
  • Finally push with git push -u origin main

Wait for a minute or so, and go to the following url : https://yourUsername.github.io and 🎉 your website appears.
