Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform meant for sites which support live interaction. Several instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any other system, which can have a considerable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with every shared hosting plan offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with just a couple of mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for multiple sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no extra charge if you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate interface, which will permit you to start/deactivate/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you will have to do to set it up is indicate the directory path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
