I am working on a browser based RPG coded mainly in PHP/MySQL, with a little flash thrown in. The current plan is to publish it on a stand-alone website as well as have Facebook integration. I don't expect it to be very popular.
I have been looking at servers to host the game and was wondering if there are any special needs a game like this requires. I keep on seeing advertisements for "unlimited storage, unlimited MySQL, unlimited bandwidth" web servers. Would one of those servers suit my requirements, and if so, how 'unlimited' is 'unlimited' (aka are they going to throw a fit if all of a sudden the popularity takes off and I'm moving TBs of data)? Also, if I decided to make it entirely in AS3, could I use a shared web server or would I have to get a VPS or dedicated server?
Any thoughts or suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks!
