Push Notification - Dedicated server required?
I'm thinking of developing an app that uses Microsoft Push Notification. However, I'm not quite sure what I need on my server. I've currently got a shared hosting account. Can I use this as my server to use Push Notification, or does the server have to be dedicated?
The short answer is yes you can use shared or dedicated hosting to send out push notifications. Shared just means there are other web servers running on the same physical hardware which does not effect the api's available to your service.
