# GitLab Pages documentation
With GitLab Pages you can create static websites for your GitLab projects,
groups, or user accounts. You can use any static website generator: Jekyll,
Middleman, Hexo, Hugo, Pelican, you name it! Connect as many customs domains
as you like and bring your own TLS certificate to secure them.
Here's some info we've gathered to get you started.

# GitLab Pages
With GitLab Pages you can host your website at no cost.
Your files live in a GitLab project's [repository](../repository/index.md),
from which you can deploy [static websites](#explore-gitlab-pages).
GitLab Pages supports all static site generators (SSGs).
## Getting Started
Follow the steps below to get your website live. They shouldn't take more than
5 minutes to complete:
- 1. [Fork](../../../gitlab-basics/fork-project.md#how-to-fork-a-project) an [example project](https://gitlab.com/pages)
- 2. Change a file to trigger a GitLab CI/CD pipeline
- 3. Visit your project's **Settings > Pages** to see your **website link**, and click on it. Bam! Your website is live.
_Further steps (optional):_
- 4. Remove the [fork relationship](getting_started_part_two.md#fork-a-project-to-get-started-from) (_You don't need the relationship unless you intent to contribute back to the example project you forked from_).
- 5. Make it a [user/group website](getting_started_part_one.md#user-and-group-websites)
**Watch a video with the steps above: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWqh9MtT4Bg**
_Advanced options:_
- [Use a custom domain](getting_started_part_three.md#adding-your-custom-domain-to-gitlab-pages)
- Apply [SSL/TLS certification](getting_started_part_three.md#ssl-tls-certificates) to your custom domain
## Explore GitLab Pages
