BattleShip Online

Hi. I'm making a game call BattleShip Online. How would I send/recieve information over the internet. My guess is that I would use FTP, but I'm not sure. What do most games use? FTP, MySQL, or what?

Best Regards,

    They use TCP/IP sockets. Just don't ask me how they work, it has been ages sence I did anything with them. They are also implemented differently on different operative systems.

    FTP is a higher level protocol based on TCP/IP. It is used for file transfer.

    MySQL is a database program, it has nothing to do with internet communication.
