i want to try using GIT .. i saw they have an amazing tutorial thingy on their site .. seems easy .. ok, so i downloaded git for windows and installed it...

now, github says it is only free for open source projects ... can i just put the git repo on my own server? do i need anything special there on the server, and can pycharm do this? or do i have to use github?
git and github are not the same thing.

Git is a distributed version control system (VCS): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_%28software%29
GitHub is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git VCS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Github

I suggest start here (or find similar tutorials on the web):

ok my question is though, can i somehow host a private git repo on my own domain, without using github, and have pycharm be able to easily access it? do i need to install anything on the server, or just a file/directory?
