GitHost is a paid GitLab git repository hosting service. On April 9, 2015 they announced that they would shut down the service and destroy all content on April 30, 2015.

Shutdown notice

GitHost Shutting Down April 30th[1]
On April 30th GitHost will be closing it's doors. We've had a good run, but the growth we had hoped to see just isn't there, and it's time to move on and focus on other things.
You will continue to have service to your instances until April 30th, at which time all remaining instances will be destroyed. You will not be billed again for any instances online. Please be sure to backup any Git repos you would like to save before that time. We will not be able to recover any data for you.

if you can.

<yipdw>	wow, that's not even just repos; that's also e.g. issue tracking and shit
<yipdw>	so unless I'm missing something about gitlab's datastore a git clone + migrate isn't going to save people


"All instances have the option to be backed up to s3, in a standard GitLab compatible format. Those backups can be restored to any GitLab install."[1]
