fatal: unable to access '...': Couldn't resolve host '...'

Hey Guys,

I'm trying to clone a private repo that my company has onto my desktop using SourceTree.  When trying to clone, I am getting the following error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false clone --recursive https://dmoran@intertechmedia.com@github.com/InterTechMedia/wpbitm.git C:\SourceTree\wpbitm
Cloning into 'C:\SourceTree\wpbitm'...

warning: templates not found C:\Users\David Moran\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\git_local\share\git-core\templates

fatal: unable to access 'https://dmoran@intertechmedia.com@github.com/InterTechMedia/wpbitm.git/': Couldn't resolve host 'intertechmedia.com@github.com'

Completed with errors, see above.

Nothing is actually cloned, it just automatically jumps to 100% without doing anything.  Are there any suggestions as to how to solve this issue?

Thank you,

-David M

The host you have specified looks wrong. You should never have two @ symbols.

Is the private repo hosted on github? If not, remove the @github.com. If so, try using dmoran instead of dmoran@intertechmedia.com.

If that is your actual github username, you may need to contact github support to find out what your clone url should look like.

I found that issue to happen when I pick the repo from the list when cloning a github repo, by going to the github project and copying the raw link solves it.

Basically you want your link to look like this:
