Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system intended for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a huge influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You can choose how many instances you wish 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 write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, in case it is required.

The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will specify a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of any of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance independently.

The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our exceptionally powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
