Appveyor vs GitHost CI: What are the differences?
What is Appveyor? Continuous Integration and Deployment service for busy Windows developers. AppVeyor aims to give powerful Continuous Integration and Deployment tools to every .NET developer without the hassle of setting up and maintaining their own build server.
What is GitHost CI? Painless GitLab CE & CI Hosting. We handle installing, updating, hosting, and backing up your own private and secure GitLab CE & CI instances in the cloud, starting at $7/month.
Appveyor and GitHost CI can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.
Some of the features offered by Appveyor are:
- Scriptless, repetitive, one-click deployment of build artifacts to multiple environments
- YAML configuration
- Backed by Windows Azure platform
On the other hand, GitHost CI provides the following key features:
- Create a Coordinator and link it to any GitLab CE install, whether GitLab Cloud, a GitHost instance, or your own private install.
- eed extra build capacity? Move the slider and click update. Done. Instant runners to build all your CI jobs.
- All GitHost instances run on SSD drives, giving you the fastest build times available.

I recommend using Travis CI and/or Appveyor in all projects.
Projects using these tools have given me confidence to know that I don't cause any breaking changes. Travis CI and Appveyor have functionality to test components of a project across multiple installation projects to ensure that modifications don't break a project. These tools integrate easily with GitHub and are useful in open source projects that must review contributions from many different people.
Appveyor, is awesome, it provides a lot of functionalities and a reduced price. If you want .NET CI, appveyor is the best option. Ever. Awesome support, easy configuration, private nuget repo included, many integrations, and useful documentation. The only downside is, sometime it's a little bit slow.
