Congratulations! You now have a static site with a custom domain name published on the Internet.
Let’s review the process we followed in this lesson:
- Created an AWS account and accessed Route 53
- Purchased a domain name
- Accessed the Hosted Zone for that domain name
- Confirmed the
NS(name server) records
Take a look at the diagram to the right. In this unit, you successfully accomplished the third and final step: assigning a custom domain name to your GitHub Pages site.
Remember, there are many different ways to deploy a site to the Internet. In this course, you learned how to use Jekyll to generate site content and deploy that content to GitHub Pages, a free service provided by GitHub.
You’re now set up to maintain and update your own personal site on the Internet. Happy coding!
