Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output system devised for Internet sites which support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk 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. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional system, which can exert a considerable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared hosting package offered by us, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with just several clicks. In case you’d like to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your apps 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-driven web apps at no extra charge in case you order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is indicate the location of the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be set automatically too and you will notice the advantages of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
