Deploy your site
Cloudflare supports deploying any static HTML website to Cloudflare Pages. If you manage your website without using a framework or static site generator, or if your framework is not listed in Framework guides, you can still deploy it using this guide.
Before you continue
All of the framework guides assume you already have a fundamental understanding of Git. If you are new to Git, refer to this summarized Git handbook on how to set up Git on your local machine.
If you clone with SSH, you must generate SSH keys on each computer you use to push or pull from GitHub.
Refer to the GitHub documentation and Git documentation for more information.
Create a GitHub repository
Create a new GitHub repository by visiting repo.new. After creating a new repository, prepare and push your local application to GitHub by running the following commands in your terminal:
$ git init$ git remote add origin https://github.com/<your-gh-username>/<repository-name>$ git add .$ git commit -m "Initial commit"$ git branch -M main$ git push -u origin main
Deploy with Cloudflare Pages
To deploy your site to Pages:
- Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
- In Account Home, select Workers & Pages > Create application > Pages > Connect to Git.
- Select the new GitHub repository that you created and, in the Set up builds and deployments section, provide the following information:
|Build command (optional)|
|Build output directory|
Unlike many of the framework guides, the build command and build directory for your site are going to be completely custom. If you do not need a build step, leave the Build command field empty and specify a Build output directory. The build output directory is where your application’s content lives.
After configuring your site, you can begin your first deploy. Your custom build command (if provided) will run, and Pages will deploy your static site.
After you have deployed your site, you will receive a unique subdomain for your project on
*.pages.dev. Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it. You will also get access to preview deployments on new pull requests, so you can preview how changes look to your site before deploying them to production.
By completing this guide, you have successfully deployed your site to Cloudflare Pages. To get started with other frameworks, refer to the list of Framework guides.
