Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform devised for sites that offer real-time communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site substantially. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional system, which can have a great effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to specify the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you do not want it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this event-driven platform once your physical server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to use, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any obstacles, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our amazingly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – 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 through the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
