My GitHub site with custom domain is not working

Hi! I’m trying to set up a custom domain for my GitHub site, but somehow it’s not working.

My domain is abelcsendes.design , and it’s provided by domain.com.

I made a CNAME record in my GitHub repository, which contains: www.abelcsendes.design and  abelcsendes.design. (I previously tried with only **www.abelcsendes.design, **without any sucess)

At my domain provider I made a CNAME record named: www and containing: https://csendesabel.github.io/csendesabel/

I found some articles about using custom domains, and they suggested to make A records to my domain, so I made them:

A name:  @ ip:  185.199.108.153

A name:  @ ip:  185.199.109.153

A name:  @ ip:  185.199.110.153

A name:  @ ip:  185.199.111.153

(a different article suggested 2 other records, so I made those as well:)

name:  ip:  185.199.111.153

name:  @ ip:  185.199.111.153

I’m a graphis designer, not a developer. This site what I coded should be my portfolio, so these kind of problems are out of my league. 

Can somebody help me with it, or make any suggestions what is the problem?

hi,

firstly, create a repository that starts with your git username.

Repository name : username.github.io

Secondly, try having only one repository in your git account.

csendesabel.github.io , that is, under user account “csendesabel” create only one repository named “csendesabel.github.io

Thirdly,

create cname entry in git repository

www.abelcsendes.design and  abelcsendes.design

Lastly,

at domain provider create cname entry

www  CNAME 1h csendesabel.github.io

Thanks,

Velan
