Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven input/output platform built for Internet sites which offer live communication. Several examples of such websites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any other platform, which can exert a great effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise path to your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port set by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the running instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can see your applications’ output with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to insert the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and many others.
