New website, free hosting, free SSL and custom domain

As Sebastian has very nicely detailed how to get to HTTPS with your custom domain with Cloudflare. You’ll notice that there are unnecessary pain that can be removed:

  1. Why do you have to give up your nameserver access to Cloudflare?
  2. Why not own your own SSL cert, via LetsEncrypt?

I’ve spoken to Sebastian, and we both agree that there must be a better way to do this. And indeed there is.

Kloudsec for Github Pages (https://kloudsec.com/github-pages) adds a CDN and a LetsEncrypt cert for your custom domain automatically in 3 steps.

  1. Register Kloudsec account
  2. Add CNAME file to your repository (if you have not already done so)
  3. Point your domain to our CDN’s IP address.

That’s it!
