Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform used for Internet sites that offer live communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a significant effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting package that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart each instance independently, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can set it up with just a few clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.
