Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system intended for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional system, which can have a serious impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can give you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you will need to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to indicate the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
