1- Create a Repository

On github.com, log in to your account. You can see the "Create repository" button right on the homepage of GitHub.
Name your Repository and set it Public or Private. A Public repository will allow all GitHub users to view or clone your repository to create their own repository, whereas a Private repository will be hidden from all regular users and only shared and used by you and your programming team.
Finally, click on "Create Repository".

2- Delete a Repository

To delete a Repository, first you need to access its Settings.
Next, scroll down to the bottom of the page so that you see the dangerous functions including:
  1. Change repository visibility (from Public to Private or vice versa).
  2. Transfer ownership of the repository to someone else.
  3. Mark this repository archived and read-only, and it cannot be changed.
  4. Delete the repository.
Click on "Delete this repository" button if you want to delete it.
