Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O platform devised for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional system, which can have a tremendous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to specify the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to remove it if you do not want it anymore. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our packages and you can set it up with only a couple of clicks. In case you would like to use it for multiple sites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as choosing the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered applications at no extra cost in case you order one of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an intuitive interface, which will enable you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you have to do to set it up is add the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
