I have used Liberty Basic for my pc for many years. I want to adopt one of my programs to run on my website (hosted by 1&1). What are the general steps to do this - what version of runBasic should I get?

If you do not have access to the operating system of the server your website is hosted on, then you will not be able to install run basic. Are you able to install RB? Can you ask the 1&1 support on how to install RB on their server?
Alternatively you can host your RB program on runbasichosting and link from your homepage to it.

Thanks very much for responding! On the runbasic hosting website, it says under the April 16th caption, "1&1 will migrate all Run Basic Hosting VPS containers to new hardware late this evening. The service will be down during this time for about 4-8 hours. I apologize for the inconvenience, but this is not an optional migration for us. The good news is that, by tomorrow, we'll be running on faster hardware." Does this mean that RB is already installed on 1&1's server?
There is another option you may be interested in. You can set up your own server. Most of the ISP's give you a static IP. If you have a static IP you can buy a domain name and point it to your IP. Since Run Basic is a server and can service your domain name. So you're ready to go with a entry in your router for port 8008. Or you can run it with something like Apache. I have mine running on a mini PC with windows-10 that I bought for less than $100. (see Amazon.com). Since it uses very little power I let it run 24/7/365. I maintain it from my main PC using VNC Viewer.
I used to run with a Hosting site, but found it was a lot simpler and easier to setup my own server...
