I was reading though previous discussions but I could not find exactly what I am looking for, so I would really appreciate your help.
I recently built my academic static site using Hugo and github pages. I set up 2 separate repos on my github account, one for regular version control, the other to host the website. Since I used the tutorial on Hugo and github pages my current domain name is .github.io.
It was an awesome experience but I noticed that the site is not actually visible on the search, and this is because I did not customize the domain name. I know it is not free, and there are several options, but my question is:
Being at this point, with my site ready and deployed using github pages, is it possible to change the domain name (e.g. to a .com) but still maintaining the current repo structure?
Do you have any suggestions?
