Add Remote Git Repository

git remote add is a command used in Git version control system to add a new remote repository to a local Git repository.

Here’s the basic syntax of the git remote add command:

git remote add <remote-name> <remote-url>
  • <remote-name> is the name you want to give to the remote repository. This is typically set to origin.
  • <remote-url> is the URL of the remote repository you want to add.

For example, if you want to add a remote repository with the name origin and the URL, you would run the following command:

git remote add origin

Once you’ve added a remote repository, you can use other Git commands like git push and git fetch to interact with the remote repository.
