Here's how you create a new private repo:
$ gitbox create myrepo gitbox: new repository 'myrepo' created $ git init myrepo Initialized empty Git repository in /home/user/myrepo/.git $ cd myrepo $ git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:myrepo $ git push -u origin master
You get to create unlimited number of private git repositories and use up to 10G of disk space (if you really need more, no worries, we'll sort it out).
You get git+ssh access to your repositories, and a command-line tool to list them.
All your repositories are backed up on a daily basis.
No collaborators on a project - you have just one user with read-write access to all your projects. If you're a small team of freelancers and you're okay with everyone having access, you can create and share the private key between you - we're fine with that.
No issue tracking or pull requests. As a single freelancer, you don't do pull requests anyways, and you probably have a preferred issue tracking tool already.
No web UI. All access is through command line.
No public repositories. GitHub does that brilliantly, already.
You pay a flat rate of $5/month. The first month is free - you can evaluate the service without any commitment. You can cancel any time. Payments are done via PayPal.

There's a lot of competition in git hosting already. Why choose us?
If you have a limited number of private projects (up to 10), by all means, use GitHub. It's an awesome git hosting (and much more), but it can be pricey for freelancers having a lot of projects.
If you need issue tracking, multiple collaborators doing pull requests, tree browsing in the UI, or any kind of UI, use GitHub or other services that provide all the bells and whistles (like Codeplane, Unfuddle or Repository Hosting).
If you need a simple, no-nonsense, just-works git hosting for your private repositories, try us.
