I need some help, i made a program with java if that matters and lets say its a instant messenger, its not but it works the same way. I have a server which handles everything that the client sends to it. Now everything works fine but i need to run the server on my computer. So i want to run it on my host so it will run 24/7. The server is just a program that gets the "messages" that the client enters, submit it to a database and output it to all the other clients. So how can i actually run that program so it works and handles everything on the host. I didnt upload it or anything but i think when i upload it to the host it will just be there without running.
Thanks in advance,
