  3. Enter a Repository name that will describe your repository and appear in its URL.
  4. Keep This is a private repository selected unless you want to make your repository public so that anyone can see it.
  5. If you already have files that that you want to add to your repository, select No from Include a README? Otherwise, go with the default option or select a one of the included README options.
  6. Select the Version control system. If you don't know the difference, keep Git as the default system.
  7. Click Create repository.

Clone your repository when you're done creating it.
