Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system devised for sites which offer live communication. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. When some form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable 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 writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any traditional system, which can exert a noticeable effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have picked during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not require it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly interface, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a random port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. As Hepsia is rather easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any complications, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you want on our extremely powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
