Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O system meant for sites that offer live communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the 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. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which web hosting package you have picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it if you do not require it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, since it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP.

The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to include the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etcetera.
