Github Pages

Did you know that you can use Github Pages to host your websites live?

It’s free and easy to setup whether you are on Windows or Mac.

There are two different types of Github Pages, one for Users & Organizations, and one for Projects. Each User & Organization can only have ONE Github Page. With each Github Page, you can have unlimited Project Pages. Project Pages are located as a subpath to the User Page (http://username.github.io/projectpage). To get more information about the similarities and differences, click here.

To set up a User Page, you first will need to create a new repository called username.github.io (where username is your Github username). This will be the URL of your website.

Then follow the instructions located here: https://pages.github.com/
