Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous input/output system used for websites that offer live communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can have a substantial influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared website hosting account, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to insert the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you do not require it any longer. You will also gain access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it is available with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will have to specify the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or removed separately and you can check your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks.

The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You will need to insert the path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
