Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can exert a substantial influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which web hosting package you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get 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 Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you no longer want it. You will also get access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can check the output of your apps with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your server is set up. As Hepsia is very easy to use, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our incredibly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
