Free Git Hosting You Can Rely On

Secure & Reliable

Over 1 million users have chosen Assembla to accelerate their projects and manage their code. Assembla's servers and Git Repositories are hosted in datacenters with world-class physical security and firewalling, and all accounts now come with 128-Bit SSL Encryption (HTTPS).

Your repositories are housed in a Storage Area Network with built-in backup and redundancy with triple failover protection. In addition, we synchronize to off-site backups to protect you against worst-case scenario data-loss where all datacenter systems fail permanently.



When you choose a free private Git repo, you can keep your intellectual property safe from prying eyes; only those you invite to be a member of your space can see your code, and you can even set IP-restrictions for your subversion repository to restrict usage to specific computers and networks.
