The keys to building a gaming website are:
1- Have a krack team of Web sit developers to create a kick-ass Gaming Site
2- Offer Money prizes to the top Gamers
3- Advertise Advertise & Advertise. And OTN, I have not find a better lower cost Advertising venue than here Anoox

I am both an IT expert and a website designer. A lot of times games are run on servers called game servers, and participants can join in on games over the Internet. To build a gaming website you need to have a game or games first - you either need to program the game or games yourself and then host them on a website.

Once you have the website and web pages it is fairly easy to allow people to login to the website and then launch an application which takes them directly into a game that is supported on TCP/IP and within in Internet browsers.

Again, it depends on if you are designing one game to run on a game server, with a web interface, or just host numerous smaller games from within your web pages - which means again the games must be designed so as to play on TCP/IP networks, and within Internet browsers, and maybe even via apps for mobile devices.

I may be interested in your services about building a gaming site too.
As I have a gaming site that I have been wanting to develope for some time.
My Gaming site is something like "Who wants to be a Millionaire" but for the Web. Can you develop such a site? If yes, roughly, ball park, what would be the cost of developing it? So to be a lil more exact this will be a gaming site that People will play by answering Questions in a certain amount of time.

This is a very complex thing to fish out; you are talking about designing a game more than a website! You would first have to design the game, and the game needs to be designed with the idea of users being able to sign up as live contestants, and compete against the digital host online over the Internet - and the game needs to be built so that it can be played on the Internet via browsers. There would only be a few web pages involved to get users to the website and through the sign up process.

dc, of course. So yes, we do have the game play already designed. Well designed to the extent of what Players are expected to do and what the host (Web site) will do.

Do you have some sample Game sites already developed that we can take a look at? We can then go from there.

Actually I do not - it might be a bit out of my league to design a website to do what you need it to do with your game. I specialize more in small business websites, HTML, etc. and do have some ability to write more complex scripts, work with databases, secure logins and such...I would love to try the game out but mostly know more about how you want to implement it for online play - specifics - then I can could see if it is something I could help you with?

Ha thanks for the heads up selvins. When I read "gaming" I took it as World of Warcraft, Call of Duty type of website - either guilds or informational. Gambling isn't something that even crossed my mind. Wow, that opens up not just a can of worms, but a real Pandora's box. You're correct, the legal ramifications of it are more than I would be prepared to take on. Couple that with the fact that there are already way too many ways to lose money - not sure the world needs another gambling site! :-)

I do agree with trog as that would be one of the two questions I would ask. The second question I would ask do you know your state laws and will this be a local site or will you allow multiple states. If you will allow multiple states will it be just USA or will it be international?

The reason I ask the above...there are legal issues that must be followed with gambling. I don't know all of those laws so I cannot help you on this matter but I would highly suggest in seeking out someone who can such as a) legal advisor and/or b) a web developer who is aware of the ecommerce laws in that state. Best of luck to you and your business!

Are you wanting to have users play games on it, sell off it, run more of a forum type site?

All them things should be perfectly possible with WordPress.
I know lots of gaming sites like to use drupal for It's customization - Only downside to it is lack of good quality free plugins. Which is where wordpress shines from the community addons like buddypress (community), bbpress(forums) and ability to allow members to automatically post their own content on the main page. I'm currently in that process right now, but not put the effort in yet to promote the website - ************************
