Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, I/O system designed for websites which offer interactive communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one big 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 writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can have a serious effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which website hosting package you have chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to add the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you no longer want it. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just one click.

If you wish 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 plan. Then, you will need to insert the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or stopped independently and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of mouse clicks.

You will only need to include the location of the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.
