Actually, yes you can. They used to only do automatic tarballs of your repository tags, but now they also allow you to upload your own files related to the release.


For hosting a webpage, GitHub Pages works really well. You can just put your HTML into a `pages` (orphan) branch of your repository, and they'll host it for you. You can even point your own domain to it if you like. Apparently they've even added a site generator that gives you some UI to help you get a basic site together.
