Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system built for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a tremendous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package 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 hosting platform, because it comes with each and every semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your physical machine is set up. Since Hepsia is rather simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many instances as you need on our very powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
