You can customize the domain name of your GitHub Pages site.
To set up a custom domain for your GitHub Pages site, you'll need to choose your custom domain and registering it with a DNS provider, configure your domain with your DNS provider, and add your custom domain to your GitHub Pages site on GitHub.
If you're setting up a custom domain for your GitHub Pages site, choose a supported custom domain for the easiest setup and more support. GitHub Pages is designed to work with two types of custom domains: apex domains and subdomains.
The type of pages site you're using determines how your site redirects custom domains.
Before setting up or modifying your custom domain with your DNS provider, you should add or remove the custom domain on GitHub.
You can set up an apex domain and a
www subdomain through your DNS provider and GitHub Pages' servers will automatically create redirects between them. For example, your site can be found at
To set up an apex domain, such as
example.com, you must configure an
A record with your DNS provider.
To set up a
www subdomain, such as
www.example.com you must configure a
CNAME record with your DNS provider.
You can set up a custom subdomain, such as
blog.example.com, by creating a
CNAME record through your DNS provider.
If your GitHub Pages site isn't loading at your custom domain or HTTPS isn't working, you can troubleshoot by reviewing common setup and configuration problems.
