Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven input/output platform meant for websites which support interactive communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site substantially. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a substantial influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the hosting package that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can select the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can view your applications’ output with only a few clicks.
