project page get associated with user page

Hi,

I have a user page at itaysk.github.io that’s aliased by blog.itaysk.com.

Now I’m trying to create a project page for one of my repo. To experiment, I created a new repo: https://github.com/itaysk/wikitest

I pushed some stuff to docs, I went to settings and chose to source from master/docs.

now it says that my site is availble under: http://blog.itaysk.com/wikitest/

I do not want to use my domain for this project. How can I give the project a regular ‘github.io’ domain (or anything else). What If I didn’t have a custom domain?

Hi @itaysk,

Thanks for being here! GitHub provides a single github.io URL per account or organization using the account/organization username. 

If you’d like to change this you’ll need to change your account’s username. You should be aware of some side effects of renaming your account, listed here:

Alternatively, you could create a new account and transfer the repository to that account:

https://help.github.com/en/articles/transferring-a-repository

Once the repository is transferred, make sure it is renamed to [newusername].github.io:

Lastly, you can configure a publishing source for the new repository which would enable GitHub Pages:

I hope this helps
