Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform designed for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the site and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can have a substantial influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every shared web hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to switch off an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no additional charge in case you get any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you have to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port will be set automatically as well and you will see the advantages of using Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
