I'd really like to use JIRA, Confluence and Bitbucket for my open-source project but it offers the open-source license for either the hosted or cloud version.
However when requesting the license for the cloud version it still asks for the url where the atlassian product is available to be viewed, leaving me confused. Do I need to host it myself? if so, what is the difference in the cloud version?
It's asking you to say where your current Atlassian suite is hosted.
If you haven't got one yet, then you'll need to create one - the easiest way is to start an evaluation on Cloud, you'll get 30 days out of that before needing a licence, but you can use the url it gives you in the request form straight away.
