Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output platform built for Internet sites which support live communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any other system, which can exert an enormous impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our plans and you can get it with just a few clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different websites, you can activate more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use GUI that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your active instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra charge when you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you need to do to set it up is enter the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
