Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform intended for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several instances of such websites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can have a remarkable effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans 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 server administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll need to enter the path to 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 order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be restarted or discontinued independently and you can check your applications’ output with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty simple to work with, you’ll be able to do that without having any obstacles, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js with ease.
