Hosting Your Code For Free

  • submit to reddit

Sometime back, I wrote about Java web application hosting, in which I listed out the different options available to you to host your Java web applications. Now, let’s look at the different solutions to host your code.

Before you dive in, please note that:

  1. Most (if not all) of the services provide the free plan only with basic features. Want more, pay them! :)
  2. The focus is on Subversion hosting only (because at the end you might wonder why Github wasn’t be seen in the list!).

Let’s list!







Bootstrap Today





Google Code

My Version Control

Project Locker

Slik SVN




I’ll be updating this list in future, if I come to know about a free code hosting solution. In case if you want to add anything to this list, please feel free to contact me.

There is also CodePlex. And people should notice - at this site, and also some of the sites you wrote - I think it's only free (or even if you pay) if the code is open source - so everyone can see it.

Could you resize the images, because they look awful and incorrectly sized for the article.

Windows XP do have a clear type add-on to make the text anti-aliased. But, unfortunately, I don’t have that plug-in installed in my machine.

And, win vista and 7 have the anti-aliasing features pre-built with them.
