Getting setup with Namecheap and Github

I thought it was only appropriate for a first post to explain and point to resources that got me stared with my custom domain using namecheap and gh-pages.

I used Namecheap help and github help sections throughout the setup.

Pointing your domains to a gh-pages branch requires the following steps.

As Followed:

  1. Create A records on Namecheap with the following Github IPs 192.30.252.153 and 192.30.252.154.
  2. Change CNAME alias on Namecheap to username.github.io. (username insert-yours)
  3. Remove URL record if it's there
  4. Just wait it could take up to 30 minutes for changes to propogate.
