Moving from GitHub to Self Hosted GitLab
· ☕ 4 min read
As the owner of a dedicated server, which I am not entirely so why/if I need, I finally decided to make the shift from GitHub to self-hosting my own git server. GitLab. No, I’m not a masochist, I have enough RAM available to self-host that big a software. Thank you Hetzner for providing a 64GB RAM server at just 54€ a month1! If you wanna take a look at my Git server: here you go! Why not just use GitHub? This is a question I get a lot. Like, “But Soham, why not just github?” or “Wait, you mean to say github and git aren’t the same thing?
