Hi, I am currently in my first year of college as a computer science major and I would like to eventually create my own website with some simple multiplayer games.

Mainly, I want a live multiplayer trivia game. I would eventually like them to have the choice to play for real money, so security is obviously a serious issue. Although, I suppose a dedicated encrypted server to send everything over should be sufficient?

In regards to security, compatibility and efficiency, what programming language(s) would be best to do this? I have thought a lot about flash, but I am not entirely sure that is the best way to go? Anyone have some ideas? Thanks!

I recommend Java. Its free to use, and its completely secure. You could host a secure database (if needed) with XAMMP. It includes PHP, MySQL, and Perl languages. It has a pretty good security. Also, most security breaks can be stopped by a powerful firewall. I've seen some good ones like Comodo Internet Security. Also, if you want to be anymore secure, i recommend Avast! Anti virus. The firewall should protect you from any DDoS attacks, seeing as its ranked high on quite a few sites.

Is Java more 'advanced' or harder to learn?

The Java courses at my college require that we take a C class before.

Flash or Java work well for simple browser games, multiplayer or otherwise.

I just finished my first course in Java and am starting my 2nd one this week. I have never worked much with C, but from what I have heard they are pretty similar. My school doesn't require C, but they did require me to take a test to make sure I was competent enough. Although, I think they just put me in there because the lower classes were all full. I got a "B" in there, which was my lowest grade....it was kind of difficult for me because I hadn't had any other formal programming experience. Nevertheless, it is definitely achieveable if you just work hard.

Yes, Java is a great language. Easy to learn and use, and very secure. I am a Junior in Highschool and I am currently in a programing class that I am learning it in.

Java is easily decompiled and modified, and even obfuscated can still be brought back to near original state(see MCP with Minecraft for an example of this). Also even with a firewall a DDoS attack can still be effective since your cable has to be able to handle the data before it even reaches your computer. Although given the other choices I suppose Java would be the most secure as long as you kept things stored server-side.
