Managing the publication of GitHub Pages sites for your organization

You can control whether organization members can publish GitHub Pages sites from repositories in the organization and restrict the visibilities that members can choose for the sites.

Organization owners can manage the publication of GitHub Pages sites from repositories in the organization.

GitHub Pages is available in public repositories with GitHub Free and GitHub Free for organizations, and in public and private repositories with GitHub Pro, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, and GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

If your organization uses GitHub Enterprise Cloud, you can choose to allow organization members to create publicly published sites, privately published sites, both, or neither. Otherwise, you can choose to allow or disallow public publishing. For more information about access control for GitHub Pages sites, see "Changing the visibility of your GitHub Pages site."

If you disallow publication of GitHub Pages sites, any sites that are already published will remain published. You can manually unpublish the site. For more information, see "Unpublishing a GitHub Pages site."
