A few of the GitHub projects I contribute to use Travis CI for build testing. However, I've noticed that some projects use travis-ci.org for build testing, while others use travis-ci.com. Both sites seem to function identically, even down to using the same UI.

What's the difference between travis-ci.org and travis-ci.com? Why do some projects use one over the other?

Travis CI originally created two separated platforms to differentiate between private repos / paid (travis-ci.com) and public repos / free (travis-ci.org).

However, as of May 2018, new users and projects (both private and public) should only use travis-ci.com (see this blog post). Note that travis-ci.org will be closed down completely on December 31st, 2020 (see this newsletter).

Although still in beta—which is a bit weird since travis-ci.org will be shut down soon—Travis CI provides a well-documented migration guide.

    Some (?) repos appear to still be on the .org e.g. travis-ci.org/citation-style-language/styles. So this migration is ongoing/slow. – hayd Sep 26 '18 at 0:00
  • @hayd yep, that's true. Updated the answer with a link to the migration guide. – beatngu13 Feb 9 '19 at 10:03
  • According to the migration guide, migration from travis-ci.org to travis-ci.com is still in closed beta. – Franklin Yu Aug 1 '19 at 13:37

    I (Sept. 2019) just learned of this. I have many repos on .org. I had to trigger migration manually (as in the linked migration doc) so I gather that migration will not be automatic. – josephwb Oct 19 '19 at 17:44

    @josephwb thx, I've updated the answer accordingly. – beatngu13 Oct 20 '19 at 9:37

Aside from pricing model, the two sites are identical.

  • travis-ci.org is a free service for public open source projects.
  • travis-ci.com is a paid service for private commercial projects.

From the FAQ page for Travis Pro

Why can’t I find information on pricing on travis-ci.org?

Travis CI is, and always will be, free for open source projects.

For a list of plans and prices for private repositories, look at travis-ci.com/plans.
