I am trying to figure out how to store variables ,for a game I am working on, on the internet where multiple copies of my game could access and manipulate them. So where do I go to find out how to do this. I understand visual basic to a limited degree but when I tried to understand how to access FTP with VB.Net I got lost. I have no knowledge of HTML or XML either just VB.Net.

One approach would be to put your variables in a data base, and the multiple copies of the game will query the data base to find the current values, or to modify them.
Your VB.NET knowledge will definitely be useful, but you'll need to arm yourself with tools to manage a data base online, such as asp.net, cgi or PHP, depending on the technology of your choice. The VB.NET program will act as a server-side program. You will need knowledge of HTML also to be able to generate the user pages from your back-end program.
Good luck with your project, and have fun.
