Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system intended for websites which offer live interaction. Several examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional platform, which can exert a tremendous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you have picked during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you will be able to add the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you no longer need it. You will also be given access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can get it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different websites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the folder path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
