Webarchitects provides free, unlimited git hosting for source code, issues and documentation for members of our co-operative on our GitLab CE server at git.coop. We can also provide maintained virtual private servers running GitLab CE for clients.
Creating repos, managing access, browsing code, comparing versions, branching, documentation and tickets are all made easy with GitLab.
We offer free accounts on git.coop to members of our co-operative. You can join our coop as an individual or as an organisation, by agreeing to our rules, which are based on the ICA Co-operative Principles, and sending a completed copy of this PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. The suggested minimum number of shares for an individual to buy is £10 and for an organisation, £100.
If you join as an organisation we will whitelist your domain so all your
members can register accounts. If you join as an individual we will create a
@webarch.coop email alias for you to use to register an
account on git.coop.
You can choose whatever domain name you wish to run your own GitLab CE server on, and we would provision a Let's Encrypt HTTPS certificate and ensure that only encrypted connections are allowed.
The memory requirements for GitLab CE are such that we would suggest as a minimum our 6 GiB RAM server should be used..
Our Sheffield virtual servers have backups in the form of whole disk snapshots which we keep for 30 days.
We have Ansible Playbooks to provision GitLab CE servers and suggest a minimum of a one hour per month support contract would also be required to cover updates to the server.
Please contact us if this is a service you would be interested in us providing for your organisation.
