Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, input/output system meant for Internet sites that offer live interaction. Some examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can have a noticeable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to suspend an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it is available with all our plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll need to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or shut down independently and you can see the output of your apps with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can uncover its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
