On the GitLab blog it was stated that Gitorious wasn't profitable anymore.

Rolf Bjaanes, Gitorious CEO, gives some background on the reasons for the
> acquisition: “At Gitorious we saw more and more organizations adopting
> GitLab. Due to decreased income from on-premises customers, running the
> free Gitorious.org was no longer sustainable. GitLab was solving the same
> problem that we were, but was solving it better.”
> “This acquisition will accelerate the growth of GitLab. With more than
> 100,000 organizations using it, it is already the most used on-premise
> solution for Git repository management, and bringing Gitorious into the
> fold will significantly increase that footprint.” says Sytse Sijbrandij,
> GitLab CEO.
> Starting today, Gitorious.org users can import their existing projects
> into GitLab.com by clicking the “Import projects from Gitorious.org” link
> when creating a new project. Gitorious.org will stay online until the end
> of May 2015 to give people time to migrate their repositories. Existing
> users of Gitorious on-premises can contact sales at gitlab.com for more
> information.


GitLab can be hosted on-premises using their free and open source Community
