Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser-based video games or online chat portals, for example, and many corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared website hosting plan you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP to gain access to the 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’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t want it anymore. You will also have access to the output code with only one click.

You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.
