First I have followed the exact instructions, https://pages.github.com/
to create a github page. I named my repository, e.g.,
desiredname.github.io. However, after pushing the index.html file to the repo, and setting >> GitHub Pages, the published url is showed as:
https://mygithubaccount.github.io/desiredname.github.io. I can rename it from the setting, but still the url is
I actually want to have the most convenient url, something like
https://mydesiredname.github.io. If someone could suggest any solution, I would really appreciate.
p.s., in another repository, I tried to import the Jekyll Academic template. All is working fine, except again the url conflict, I can so far use the url as
https://mygithubaccount.github.io/desiredname. I tried to update the
_config.yml file to modify the url, but it did not work, or may be I do not know how to do it.
How can I have an url
