Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform built for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional platform, which can have an enormous influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if necessary.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are quite powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it quite easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has designated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deleted separately and you’ll be provided with access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
