Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven I/O system meant for sites which offer live communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one big 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 one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast to any other system, which can exert an immense influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should go through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud platform, as it comes with each semi-dedicated package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
