I'll be going over how to deploy a site on Netlify. Netlify offers hosting and serverless backend services for web applications and static websites...per google.
Some of the great features that Netlify come out of the box are
- Simply push to Deploy
- Free SSL certificate
- and Forms without server-side code and JS
overall its very simple to set up, but you will need a Github account to follow this tutorial.
Create an account on Netlify you can use your email or use Github (Like I do).
Once logged in select "New Site from Git"
On Create a new site select either Github, Gitlab, or Bitbucket. I will be using Github
On the Continuous deployment Github app, select one of your repositories.
on the next step, Site settings for the repo address. You can leave the default settings unless you want to change the Branch to deploy.
Select Deploy site.
This step could take a couple of minutes.
You will be provided with a temp link so that you can access your site and to share with people.
After this you can add changes by pushing code into Github using the branch that you selected on the "Branch to Deploy" section.
You can add a custom domain name and add your ssl certificate by navigating to your dashboard and heading to Domain management.
