Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O system used for websites that support live communication. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any traditional system, which can exert a serious influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with several mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to uncover its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to define the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation on the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
