Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system designed for Internet sites that offer live communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other system, which can exert a noticeable impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to specify the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to deactivate it if you don’t require it any longer. You will also acquire access to the output code with just a click.

In case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP.
