Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system intended for sites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any other system, which can have a great influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting plan you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down in case you no longer want it. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can make full use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will choose a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to remove/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra cost if you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will permit you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you’ll need to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js instantly. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
