There are various Free Subversion repositories spaces available for hosting our projects in the web among them here i would like to share some with great features. I had been using Assemble.com Subversion repository for one of my project and they had offered 500 MB of free private repository space but currently Assemble.com have stopped offering free private repositories. Here are the other alternatives for free Private Subversion repositories.

  • XP-Dev: Easy setup and will allow you to create up to 5 repositories each with 300 MB of size. Allow you to create both public and private repositories with SSL access.
  • Unfuddle: Unfuddle is offering 200 MB of free private repository space without SSL feature but the have bundle of other features such as issue tracking, milestones, messages, RSS and iCal access.
  • OpenSVN: OpenSVN allows you to create your project repository with unlimited space with both the private and public access and SSL option. It doesn’t have the features trac or wiki.
  • Google Code: Google project hosting is easy to setup and having feature of unlimited space for projects with private and public access with SSL options. It also includes wiki, trac, milestones options with repository.

Please share about your SVN hosting which have more useful features.

Update: You can find more Free and Commercial Subversion Repositories for your projects at http://www.cf411.com/#scc-repositories

I think Google code limits you to 10 repositories. I may be remembering incorrectly here, but they must be Open Source projects as well.

Erik is correct, Google Code is open source projects only.

Open SVN is a nightmare. The first indicator is that their SSL certificate does not match their domain. They've incorrectly tried to configure it as a wildcard certificate. The second clue is the big warning on the homepage about losing two weeks worth of repository data. Why would I host my project at a location that loses two weeks worth of version data?

My suggestion on version control has always been to host your own. It's free and you have complete control over your repo. Since version control systems typically require very few resources an older box with mirrored disks and good nightly backups is very inexpensive to build there is very little reason to choose an external host.

What about RiaForge (www.riaforge.org)? It is the best place to go to find CF,Flex & AIR open source projects. You also have free svn hosting with your project

@Erik Giberti – Thanks for the information.

@TJ Downes – Yes I agree with you on the OpenSVN but it’s up to the users who wish to choose the best for SVN repositories for there projects. Own hosting is very safe and we have full control but the free repositories might be useful for people who don’t have any own hosting with them. Thanks for you ideas.

@Dan Vega - RIAForge is great for Open source projects but to host our own projects we need to go for paid svn options or these free svn repositories in the web.

Thanks for sharing, Akbarsait. For what it's worth to your readers, I have links to a few more, as well as also links to some reviews of them, as a category within my CF411 site:

Remote Source Code Repositories
http://www.cf411.com/#scc-repositories

This is one of several hundred categories of tools and resources of interest to CFers. I didn't have a couple mentioned here and have added them. Again, thanks.

I've used Unfuddle for various projects (both paid and free accounts) and have been very happy with them. Quick answers when I need support, great control panel tools to manage my projects, etc.

Disclaimer: I co-manage the Sacramento CF User Group, and Unfuddle has provided us with a sponsored account for the group, but the reason we asked them was based on my positive experience with Unfuddle on previous projects. I'd say these things even if they weren't helping out my group. :)

@Charlie – Thanks for the information and I have updated my post with the link for Source code repositories at CF411.com

@Nolan Erck – Thanks for sharing your experience with Unfuddle :-)

I've just tried unfuddle out and was very pleased with it. The SSL-Support is the only thing missing. But in total there service is great.

Does somebody know the name of the dashboard application they use?

Hi!, XP-Dev have an web form to import/export an SVN-repository. Unfuddle seems to be more friendly, but to do the import/export action, i have to contact they.

"If you have an existing Subversion repository which you would like to move to Unfuddle, simply make a dump (svnadmin dump) and contact us".

XPDEV is now upto 1500mb space, Unlimited repos and users :)
