To add a new remote, use the git remote add command on the terminal, in the directory your repository is stored at.

The git remote add command takes two arguments:

  • A unique remote name, for example, “my_awesome_new_remote_repo”

  • A remote URL, which you can find on the Source sub-tab of your Git repo

For example:

#set a new remote

git remote add my_awesome_new_remote_repo

#Verify new remote

git remote -v

> my_awesome_new_remote_repo (fetch)
> my_awesome_new_remote_repo (push)

To push your changes into your remote repo execute the git push <remote> <branch> command:

git push <your_remote_name>

#git push my_awesome_new_remote_repo
