Unable to Host the Website

Hello, I am fairly new to Github. I have hosted a few website but the one I have problems with is a huge on. I am trying to host a website, but it shows the readme file after publishing it. It would be really helpful if someone could tell me what is wrong with my files as soon as possible.
Thankyou very much!


Hi @kamyashinde, welcome to the GitHub Support Community! Pages serves a file called index.html, index.md, or README.md by default, in that order. As you don’t have a file called index.html Pages is serving your README file.

You can see your site online by visiting the page directly:


If you’d like to serve this by default then you’ll need to rename it from new-home-page.html to index.html.

That’s so true. Thank you very much!
