GitHub or Bitbucket for Code Hosting?

I am not sure how many among us are coders or say even the people who are into code documentation. I have recently learned a lot about saving the code on the GIT. So I signed up to both GitHub and the bitbucket. And it seems like both are good as far as the code hosting is concerned. I didn't want to limit myself to one platform. And so I may also add the code to the GitLab too. Because all three of them are free and worth using. 

Do you host your code or designs in Git repository online?

Soon I will start use GitHub since some employers say if you have Github profile, it can be advantage to get a job. Of course, depends what projects you do but as I see it can be bad.

Yes if you want job in IT, many companies do look at your github history. And they do want to see your projects. Because they consider you as someone who is interested in coding that way. I don't think anything would be bad even if it is simple. But not having profile these days means it is hard to asses that person.

Nowadays Github,gitlab or Bitbucket are the popular code repositories.I have a github profile where I have published my hobby open-source codes and try to contribute to open-source projects. Back in the days,there were Google code  and sourceforge.net which were some good code hosting websites too.

I try to make sure to deploy to all those 3 sites. Because depending on one site would only restrict our own flow if those services decides to go paid. In past sourceforge was good but it still uses the SVN. That is what i have noticed so far when it comes to code hosting.

I do not at the moment since most of my coding work is on Jcink and I can use a Jcink board to host all necessary files for people to use, though I mostly stopped hosting JavaScript files and just deposit the full code into the post for people to copy and paste or host themselves if they so like. I'll probably use one of the aforementioned services if I ever want to try and obtain a web developer position and do more coding projects than just for Jcink.

Also I need to start work on writing documentation of my projects. So far I only sometimes add comments into file, but it is not enough. Yesterday I started old project and I forgot how did I do some parts of code.
