Well there are 2 options of compiling
1) realtime compiling
2) pre compiling
the first option, is just like php\asp\jsp scripts, the server (Flash Data Services)
so u will need some hosting with java support
the second option, is just like developing stuff in flash, you write ur code, import assets and compile, then just apploah HTML+SWFs to your hosting
