Create and configure your Github account

Configurare noua (How To)


GitHub is the single largest host for Git repositories, and is the central point of collaboration for millions of developers and projects. A large percentage of all Git repositories are hosted on GitHub, and many open-source projects use it for Git hosting, issue tracking, code review, and other things.

  • Setup and Configuration

The first thing you need to do is set up a free user account. Simply visit, choose a user name that isn’t already taken, provide an email address and a password, and click the big green “Sign up for GitHub” button.

As of right now, you’re fully able to connect with Git repositories using the https:// protocol, authenticating with the username and password you just set up. However, to simply clone public projects, you don’t even need to sign up – the account we just created comes into play when we fork projects and push to our forks a bit later.

  • If you’d like to use SSH remotes, you’ll need to configure a public key. If you don’t already have one, see Generating Your SSH Public Key. Open up your account settings using the link at the top-right of the window:

  • Then select the “SSH keys” section along the left-hand side.

  • From there, click the “Add an SSH key” button, give your key a name, paste the contents of your ~/.ssh/ (or whatever you named it) public-key file into the text area, and click “Add key”.
