Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system built for sites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart each instance independently, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for different Internet sites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js 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 lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, as this platform is integrated into our custom tool. As our servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you use numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or stopped independently and you will obtain access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
