Hello all, I am in need of a Git or CVS for my projects, but I don't know where to start. I'm not even sure if it's possible to install Git on my shared hosting that uses cPanel. Anyone have any tips or advise?

I don't think you can install Git on a shared hosting environment. You would need root access to install the git binaries alone.
Lives by faith, thinks by logic.

Why can't you just use git on your dev machine and push to either GitHub or BitBucket?
I was thinking easier updating of websites that I work on for people, because lately it's started to become a hassle remembering what has been changed and what needs uploading via ftp. But last night I spoke to my hosting provider and they are putting me on a new server tonight with Git and retiring my current server, so I should have Git by tomorrow morning. :-)

I would imagine that your shared hosting provider will only be installing the Git client, not the server. You still need a Git server, like GitHub, BitBucket, or Gitosis installed locally.
There is no such thing as a git server. Typically you access git repositories via ssh. Github and the like are just web interfaces to a git repository. You still push via ssh (or https if you wish).
