Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O platform meant for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a tremendous effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etcetera.
