Advice on where to start with a web server/app
I'd like to have a program listen 24/7 to a public data feed and then send out emails when it receives certain information. It would also have a website where users sign up and store their data in a database. The second part I know how to do, but I'm a little lost as to how the first would work. Can I do this with hosting on something like godaddy?

This feature should probably be executed using cronjob / scheduled task.
