Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform designed for websites that support real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional system, which can have a considerable influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we’re offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number selected by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of any of your apps or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you will 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 have to define the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit as to the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
