Free Web Hosting with GitHub:

While working through web development course, I came across a great tip for hosting a website for free on GitHub. Simply follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Create a repository in your GitHub account with the name “yourusername.github.io”
  • Step 2: Clone that repository to your computer
  • Step 3: Add an index.html file to your cloned repository
  • Step 4: Commit the changes (the added index file) and push it to GitHub master repository.
  • Step 5: Wait a couple minutes and then type the address “http://yourusername.github.io in your browser to see if the website is live.
