Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform built for Internet sites that offer live interaction. Some examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can have an immense effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud 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 have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to add the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.
