Ok so im wondering is it possible to write html code from scratch to build a pretty sophisticated website? Like lets say I want a website containing flash, forums, and I want members to sign up given I have a site people want to visit. I plan on starting slow and getting familiar HOWEVER, i want to use my own server rather than renting one and just renting the domain name instead. Is this even possible? Shed some light please. Thankyou Is an all flash website sound ridiculous?
