    I've been wanting to write a few apps for android lately, but I keep coming across the same predicament. I don't know where to host the servers. I want it to be a community and have a server or database server. I'm curious how most people do this? Do they pay a third party to hosts their database or other servers? If so do you have any idea of which ones are the best and their costs. Or do most people just dish out the money and buy equipment to run a basic server. If they run a basic server what type of backup/security measures do you run and what about if you lose internet connection yourself does your app stop working or do you send it over to a different server?

    People host them on their own servers. A host I suggest is Free Website Hosting because they are free and have unlimited space and bandwidth. But how you implement connecting to your server is up to you. You can use almost any method in java that is used to connect to the server.

    Thanks for the info. I figured most people set it up. I just don't think I could offer the best services on my own right off the bat. I was kind of hoping there was some magic third party place that will host my code that I could start at a low cost before eventually setting up my own personal servers.

    You can host your own for FREE. Go to Free Website Hosting and they will host it for you for FREE, with unlimited everything.
