Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform used for Internet sites that support live communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any other system, which can exert a significant impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans offered by our company include Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the exact location of your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port chosen by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the running instances with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a pretty user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, as it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to specify the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you can check your applications’ output with just several clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to indicate the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
