Set up your URL

GitHub Pages gives you a few options for where your live site appears:
Custom Domain (recommended)
User/org Site
Project site (default)
Example URL: your-custom-domain.com
Purchasing a custom domain is highly recommended. It looks professional, it's easier to remember and type, and it's easy and cheap to set up (.coms are usually only about $10 per year).
To set this up, follow the instructions here. In summary:
  1. 1.
    Purchase a domain name from a reputable service.
  2. 2.
    Point your domain name provider to GitHub Pages using an A record. This is slightly different for each provider; they should have their own instructions on how to do it.
  3. 3.
    Set the custom domain field in your repo's "⚙️ Settings".
Example URL: your-lab.github.io
...where your-lab is your GitHub user/organization name
To set this up, rename your repo to your-lab.github.io in your repo "⚙️ Settings", and that's it!
Example URL: your-lab.github.io/your-lab-website
...where your-lab is your GitHub user/organization name, and your-lab-website is the repo name you chose.
This is where your live site appears by default when you enable GitHub Pages.
After making any needed changes above, wait a bit (~30 seconds to 3 minutes) for your live site to redeploy to its new location. (You can check your repo's "▶️ Actions" for status.)
