Hello, the situation is such that I want to create a mobile application in which necessary data, pictures and videos will be loaded from the server, where will I pre-load the necessary data. But here's the thing - I have never engaged in development of mobile applications, and the experience was just creating websites. The main and the only question at this point I had is the server itself. Can the average hosting sites provide a server to a mobile app could pull data from there? Or you need to look for a special specialized hosting? So far, I am inclined to think that to approach any hosting, only he supported the right programming language on which you are going to work, but still I would like to clarify. And here's another question. The app will write on java, and what language is preferable to write the server part? That is, does the backend have any indirect impact on the client? For example, whether an ios app written in objective-c to work and interact with the server part written in java?

The first is written in a language that you know, and after that if the app "took off" see what the rest(resources/capabilities) and either improve their code or rewrite in a language more suitable for the tasks, or move to more powerful hardware.

In 99% of cases the interaction between the client and server implement using standard protocols(http(s) WebSocket protobuf, etc.), libraries for working with them are in all the popular languages.

Well, since you wrote the sites you should understand that the frontend of the website is essentially a client to the backend and it's easy to replace, even a mobile, although desktop client without any changes of server code. Of course the server code itself should provide the API, not to be a shitload of PHP+HTML.

As for the hosting to start, you can use any, even shared. But it is better to take vpsку, for example in Aruba for a total consideration of € 1, for 3евро OVH or DigitalOcean for$ 5. But at design time you can use the free plans from Amazon/Google/Microsoft.
