Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the online users and can considerably improve the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, once any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there are numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and many companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you have chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to delete it if you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also get access to the output code with just one click.

You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP.

A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of sites and enjoy a fabulous performance.
