Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform designed for sites which offer real-time communication. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can have a noticeable impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, regardless of which web hosting package you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you no longer require it. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this platform as soon as your server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to work with, you will be able to make that without coming across any obstacles, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you wish on our amazingly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with no effort.
