Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking input/output system designed for websites that offer live interaction. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one large chunk 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. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional system, which can have an immense impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to add 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 Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or shut down independently and you can see the output of your apps with only a few clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven applications at no additional cost when you buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a user-friendly GUI, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to set it up is include the folder path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
