Simple /command translate on which server

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a question about creating a HipChat addon. I would like to translate the command "/long" into a message that is green and will be noticed by the HipChat user.

So this: Screenshot_26.png

should be translated into this: Screenshot_27.png


I successfully passed the getting-started-with-atlassian-connect-express-node-js and installed the test addon into my HipChat room. 


The question is: Will this addon run on a HipChat server or will this addon run on another server/my computer?

Because I don't have a own server or the possibility to let my computer on 24/7.


Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Rutger Manders
