Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for Internet sites which support real-time communication. A few instances of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other system, which can have a serious impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you have chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in only a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to define the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
