Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven input/output system built for Internet sites which support live interaction. A few instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its users in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other platform, which can exert a significant influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans offered by us support Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js application or view the output of the active instances with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely easy-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with just several clicks. If you want to use it for multiple web sites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to enter the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
