Setting up a GitHub subdomain to host your html website is very simple.
Start with creating a new repository on GitHub with the project name as yourusername.github.com.
Once you have created the repository you need to set it up on your local machine and push a master branch with index.html file. Follow the below steps
mkdir hussainanjar.github.com cd hussainanjar.github.com/ git init git remote add origin [email protected]:hussainanjar/hussainanjar.github.com.git vim index.html git add index.html git commit -m "Added index page" git push -u origin master
Once you push your branch you will get following email from GitHub.
Your page has been built. If this is the first time you’ve pushed, it may take a few minutes to appear, otherwise your changes should appear immediately.
So as the email suggests just wait for few minutes and you will have your own html website hosted on GitHub subdomain.
