Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system designed for sites that offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If some form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other platform, which can have a considerable influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every shared hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or stopped separately and you can check your applications’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this event-driven platform as soon as your server is set up. As Hepsia is incredibly simple to use, you will be able to do that without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our extremely powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
