Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser games or online chat platforms, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to insert the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down in case you don’t want it any longer.

You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have created.
