Step 2

  1. Open the HubPress Admin Console. ""

  2. Click Settings.

  3. In the CNAME field, type in your domain name. You don’t need the www prefix.

  4. Save your changes.

  This will add a cname file into your main directory in your gihtub page. Inside the cname file will just be the url of your sites tile.
