I haven't tried using git's default web interface (gitweb) in a long
time, but if you're willing to spend an hour or two to get set up, I've
been very happy with GitLab (, which is kind of like
a self-hosted Github or BitBucket.

You'll need to get your team to use SSH keys, but that's standard
practice for most git management systems (e.g. gitolite).

If you're willing to do remote hosting for the time being, BitBucket
( allows private repositories. That'll get you
going and hold your hand through the basics of git. If and when you
switch to gitlab, it's just a matter of redirecting your remotes.

Git should be installed on any system you want to have a repository on.

No experience with NetBeans, but this shows up with a quick search:
