Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser games or instant messaging software, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like 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 write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

If you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package.

This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address.

A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy an exceptional performance.
