Manual Deployment

Jekyll generates your static site to the _site directory by default. You can transfer the contents of this directory to almost any hosting provider to get your site live.


This theme is prepared to be hosted on Netlify. All you need to do is create a new private repository on GitHub or GitLab. Upload the theme to the repository and link your repo to Netlify. Please check this link with the step by step guidelines.

Amazon S3

If you want to host your site on Amazon S3, you can do so by using the s3_website application. It will push your site to Amazon S3 where it can be served like any web server, dynamically scaling to almost unlimited traffic.

Also, please check the Deployment Methods page on Jekyll website.
