Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O platform intended for websites that support real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website substantially. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have an enormous impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which hosting plan you have chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can define the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it if you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is available with each plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also designate a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.
