Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform devised for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of 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 processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other system, which can exert a great influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every cloud hosting plan offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of any of your apps or to remove/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no additional cost if you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is include the location of the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
