Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform built for Internet sites which support live communication. Several instances of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the site substantially. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional system, which can have a tremendous impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it if you do not want it any longer. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Since our servers are quite powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or stopped separately and you will be provided with access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
