Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output system built for Internet sites that support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can exert a serious effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can indicate the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you do not want it anymore. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only one mouse click.

The setup is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your active instances, to get new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

This makes our VPS packages a perfect choice for administering different real-time Internet applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll simply need to specify the path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you will have to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the advantages of running Node.js straight away. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
