Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to build a small webapp with some i/o communication with the server via ajax.

Since I'm on a dreamhost shared server I already know that I cannot use node.js to build my app. But now, reading around the internet, I'm starting to suspect that I can also forget about websockets!!!

Am i right??

Thanks

According to this post you have to upgrade your DH server from shared to VPS or Dedicated to use WebSocket.
