Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser video games or live chat systems, for instance, and many corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you want to add to your 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 insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, if necessary.

In case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or removed independently and you can check the output of your apps with just a few clicks of the mouse.
