Be sure you’ve pushed your public key to github.com
Create a repository on github.com.

 $ git init

 $ git commit -m "first move"
 $ git remote add origin git@github.com:/USER/REPO.git

origin is the local alias for your remote repository url. It’s possible to connect your local repo to multiple remote URL’s (hosts)
