Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform devised for websites that support interactive communication. Some instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one giant 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. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can have a substantial impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with only several mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as entering the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your apps with just a click.

This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent choice for administering different real-time script-driven applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will simply need to specify the location of the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access controls.

As our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you host lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or stopped independently and you’ll acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
