Now it's time to push our code up to a professional web hosting service - Heroku.

Next we need to add ssh keys, type:
After that we need to create an app, type:
Now rename your app:
heroku rename *PICK NAME*
change *PICK NAME* to whatever name you want to choose.
Next, rename your index.html file to index.php
Now we need to save our code to version control:
git add .
git commit -am "final commit"
next push your code to Heroku.Type:
git push heroku master
Hints & tips

- Remember to save your code to git before pushing it to Heroku!
