Technically Git doesn't need a central location, in fact that's the point. 
In reality Git is often used with a central repository to share changes but 
this is more about administration, enterprise engineering policies, etc. 
and to make collaboration a bit easier. This is not a bad list of the ways 
in which Git repositories can be shared....

Using a service like Bitbucket (I use that for personal projects and like 
it very much), Github, etc. is great if that's a viable option for you. If 
you are doing the work for a company that has rules about what you can 
store in services like Bitbucket then you may want to consider Atlassian's 
Stash product (Atlassian own Bitbucket) or you can go with something free 
like Gitblit, Gitosis, etc.
