remote: Repository not found.
fatal: repository 'https://github.com/xairam/repemo.git/' not found
Seems like you need to create a repo 1st on github and than ppush it.

The remote used is a SSH one and not HTTPS, can change it easily though. If using SSH, it requires SSH keys (and it won't ask for password, so that's useful)

curl -u 'USER' https://api.github.com/user/repos -d '{"name":"REPONAME"}'
git remote add origin git@github.com:USER/REPONAME.git
git push origin master

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I don't think this creates the remote repository on the server. It just creates a remote pointer in the local git repo.
