Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform used for websites that support real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire 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 moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional platform, which can have an immense impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans that we offer come with Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port allocated by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a very intuitive graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, since it comes with each package offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. As Hepsia is really easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our exceptionally powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js without any effort.
