  4. so going with HTML5 is best ??? [quote name='LennyLen' timestamp='1345388359' post='4971112'] If you're very new to game development, it's a bit premature to be worrying about the price of the server you will be hosting your website on. [/quote] approx how much the server rates will be for a 100 active visitors ???
