Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform intended for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert an immense influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

You can use Node.js with each hosting plan that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given app.

You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have activated.
