Congrats — you're the proud owner of a custom domain name!
You might notice, however, that your new domain name doesn't work yet — you can't visit it in your web browser. We have to connect it to your GitHub Pages website first.
There are two steps required:
- Inform GitHub of the new domain name we'll be using (the one you purchased)
- Set up DNS records in Route 53 that direct to GitHub
Let's start with the first step.
