What does everyone use for their private repos?

Personally, I employ the use of GitHub's cloud service. We used to BitBucket but I just don't like it for some reason, it just doesn't feel right to me.

Being a sysadmin myself, I never liked hosting my own git server. Or are you using GitLab's cloud version?
I am using the cloud version. I used to host my own git server but then I figured why take all the pain for maintaining another server when I can use theirs. :D

Being a sysadmin myself, I never liked hosting my own git RM server. Git and email are two things I will never self host. Are you using GitLab's cloud version?

Edit: I also didn't like GitLab much last I used it.
I use GitLab and I self-host my own email server.

To be completely honest, neither gets used very much and I generally leave them, with maybe an update command issued every few days.

GitLab is really easy to setup with the packages set up for everything in one go. I've configured nginx to forward to the GitLab instance, and I've setup GitLab to use the Redis server I was already running for XenForo, but everything runs fine on my VPS.

You can have a play if you want: https://git.xf-liam.com/login - if you want an account, let me know and I'll create you a basic one :)

My problem is not so much that it's really difficult to manage, it's just that last time I used GitLab it was very temperamental (so I don't like to use it, it also put me off every self hosting git) and email servers are just a pain in the ass, so I never want to touch one of them unless it's for a client. They require a lot of maintenance for active use and deployment.

Do you actively use your GitLab installation? How is it now?
