Hi,

What's the current state of using Websockets on Webfaction? I see a lot of answers on here which indicate it's impossible without a dedicated IP because Nginx doesn't support HTTP 1.1 (which it does as of somewhat recently). However, this question indicates that it's now possible without purchasing a dedicated IP.

As of April 2014, we support Websockets via the 'custom websockets app listening on port' application type available via our control panel.

Just install that app, make a note of its assigned port, then configure your websockets app to listen on that port, then add it to your site.

Hope that helps!
