Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system devised for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional platform, which can have a serious impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you use. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can set it up with just a few clicks. If you’d like to use it for different websites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your active instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is included by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal option for hosting numerous real-time script-powered apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to do it.

Our system will also designate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered applications at no extra charge if you acquire any of our dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-use interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to activate it is include the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port will be selected automatically as well and you will see the advantages of running Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
