Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform designed for Internet sites which support live communication. Some examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When some form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a great effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All Linux website hosting that we offer include Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the exact location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly easy-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as the platform is built into our custom-built tool. As our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or canceled independently and you will obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
