Github Pages

I am struggling with understanding how you forward and mask your url from GoDaddy 

 

My Repo https://github.com/mrkwrght/mw-site

 

my domain : mrkwrght.com

Re: Github Pages

"Masking" is an outdated browser trick/hack, it should be avoided in modern times.

 

Login at GitHub and add the domain to your Pages site.

Then login at Go Daddy and modify the DNS for the domain.

https://www.godaddy.com/help/manage-dns-680

 

A records. (control the domain http://yourdomain.com )

 

  • Host: @  Points to: 192.30.252.153
  • Host: @  Points to: 192.30.252.154

 

CNAME record (control the sub-domain http://www.yourdomain.com

  • Host: www Points to: YOUR-GITHUB-USERNAME.github.io

 

 

 

Re: Github Pages

@Nate What would I need to do in order to enable https on github. Currently I have domains from namecheap pointing to github and I have no problem enabling https. But for the domain on GoDaddy github wont allow me to enable https in the options. It says, "Enforce HTTPS — Unavailable for your site because you have a custom domain configured".

Re: Github Pages

@bobbidigi, The IP addresses have changed to allow for CDN and SSL.

 

  • 185.199.108.153
  • 185.199.109.153
  • 185.199.110.153
  • 185.199.111.153

 

Make sure to edit the A records for host @ to point to the new IP addresses.  This can take a day or two to update.  Then within your GitHub account remove the custom domain and re-add it.
