GitHub Pages allow you to serve any static website straight from your Github repository. This option is especially worth considering if you are building a single-page app, personal or small business website, and use Github.

This way, you’ll have a fast performing site that is easy to manage (the file changes are instantly deployed). Best of all, GitHub Pages already have HTTPS and CDN built-in. You can use a service like Cloudflare to make it more DDoS protected. Think of it as an additional security and protection layer.
To start quickly, Github offers you a few themes. Let’s be honest, they look a little bit outdated, but if you need to run something quick, it will be just fine.
GitHub Pages is an easy way to go live with a static website if you already use GitHub to host the repository. GitHub gives you a
username.github.io/repository URL. You can use your custom domain too. It’s a perfect solution if you want to set up a landing page for your side project quickly.
