Creating a custom domain with github pages
« on: November 18, 2015, 01:57:07 pm »
I finally got my website up and running but the URL is complicated. I want a custom domain to switch it to virtualfriend.emb.com. I added the CMAKE file already in gh-pages but now it's saying something that I need a DNS manager pointing to the github IP address. Is there any free DNS managers available?

Well, in order to get a custom comain, you need to get a domain :P
You can buy one for a few dollars, or you can get a  free one at some sites (http://www.dot.tk/ for example)

Sadly, no. (Unless there is some shady site that offers free .com domains in exchange for completing a survey or something, but its better not to do that ;))

It doesn't matter if you are using your computer as server or github... Github is better for your current purposes I guess.
But you still need a domain, and they are usually cheap but cost a little bit. However, there are also some possibilities to get a domain for free, but I wouldn't recommend that.

You can not run PHP on a github pages site. PHP is run on the server, not the client, so obviously GitHub doesn't allow people to run code on their servers. The only way to run PHP is to host the site yourself.

Sure, I'd recommend the Abyss web server.

.tk has horrible uptime sometimes, though (2004 and 2010 in partucular had 50% uptime). Use it as last resort.

I use noip.com for my site, and have never had problems with it.

Does the server work when the computer is off or does it need to be on the whole time?

Of course it has to be on, how would you expect it to do anything if the computer is off?
