Manual Upload vs Git Upload? Private git repositories?

I’m new to this, so please excuse my ignorance. Apparently you can upload a project to Netlify two ways: Through a git (e.g. Github) or a manual upload. At the moment I am favouring the manual upload method because I don’t want my website in an open-source repository with ambiguous copyright protection. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using the manual upload method? Thanks.

I just read that NetflfyCMS doesn’t work with manually uploaded projects. If that’s true, is there an alternative that would allow non-tech users to edit the project?

If the concern is having a repository in public open source, GitHub offers private repositories for free and Netlify doesn’t distinguish between public or private repos for hosting in their free plan.
