Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform intended for Internet sites which support live communication. Some instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a given form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can exert an immense effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you have selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will allow you to choose 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 after that, you’ll be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you no longer need it. You will also have access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as this event-driven platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you host multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has set a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
