  • 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
  • Finally push with git push -u origin main

Wait for a minute or so, and go to the following url: and 🎉 your website appears.
