Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system meant for websites that support live interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to add the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it if you do not want it any longer. You’ll also gain access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account 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 server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.

As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
