Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform devised for websites which support interactive communication. A few examples of such sites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website significantly. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can have a noticeable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can insert the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to shut it down if you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with just one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or deleted separately and you can check your applications’ output with only several clicks.

Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.
