I would like to write a small guide of recommendations for host your static website (blog, portfolio, landing page, etc.) in GitLab.com. Why not GitHub.com?, basically because of this open Feature Request, you can not (for the moment) use your own SSL Certificates and custom domain in GitHub Pages. You should also read my previous article where I describe why I decided to do this.
This guide is divided into 4 major topics that I will proceed to document.
