Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system intended for sites which offer real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional system, which can exert a remarkable effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it’s included with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check the output of a given application or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as this platform is available in our in-house built tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will get superb results even if you use plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it rather easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued separately and you will obtain access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
