Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O platform intended for Internet sites which support real-time communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a substantial impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with several clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our plans and you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for different websites, you can add more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as indicating the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your running instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
