Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform used for sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a substantial influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with every cloud web hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also designate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is quite simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our extremely powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without effort.
