Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, 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 of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can have a tremendous influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use.

You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is required.

The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include 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 choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have added.
