if you want to use PHP+MySQL then there are free alternatives altho you better go for your own domain name + hosting which costs €40/year or so to be completely independent as you never know what happends to these free services.

If you plan to use B4J to develop the back end then you need a VPS. There are low cost options available (~$10 per month).
I couldn't resist. Please, can you make a video tutorial about B4J and VPS? Maybe azure VPS.

There plans for 1.87 USD month.
Quite expensive :)
My Aruba's VPS fee is 1€/month (even less if you don't turn it on H24). Obviously no backups nor any other "farm" service included in that price.
I use it as a test/experiment laboratory. Successfully run MQTT mosquitto broker, Let'sEncrypt certificate, MySQL, a few B4J back-end server apps. Not bad for a toy..

Thank you all for the suggestions it seems that my brain switches off
whenever the word server is mentioned.
I have found this but for the life of me can not get it to work

Anyone bored enough to have a go and post the code if successful?

Many thanks

i do not fully understand why the fuss with the leaderboard, it should be trivial with B4J + Jserver to create such application

of course that is not something Anywhere Software would do, game developers are just a fraction of the developers here.
