Why will be free forever

We want to become the most popular service for hosting projects. To achieve this goal, is completely free, both for public and private projects. Unlike other companies in this space, there is no limit to the number of collaborators. We think that in the future most repository hosting will be free in the same way email hosting is free today. So we thought, why wait? Let's make it free for everyone now. Currently our subscriptions for GitLab on-premises bring in more than enough revenue to pay for hosting. In the future we'll introduce a marketplace on where you can subscribe to additional services but we plan to keep the features you have now free.
