What can I do with Github page?
If you need a simple website for your project, then use GitHub pages. It’s free and better than cheap $4.99/mo hosting, which can be easily hacked, is slow and requires you to use cPanel. Here’s what you’ll need to get your website up and running using github page:
- Create account on GitHub (do it once).
- Create a new repository.
- Send your developer a link to that repository, and a Twitter Bootstrap theme of your choice (Google it if you don’t know where to get a beatiful theme).
- Point your CNAME records in Godaddy, or whatever you’re using, to GitHub IPs (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124).
- Merge pull request from you developer on GitHub.com.
- Boom! You’ve got your website.
There’s no need for WordPress or PHP. GitHub Pages is free and it is faster than BlueHost. The site must be static only without any PHP, Node.js or any other server-side logic. You can use foxyform or EmailMeForm for contact forms, and Gumroad for sales. For blogs, you can use Wintersmith or Jekyll.
