Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform intended for sites which support live communication. Some examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any conventional system, which can have a huge influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can select 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 insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting packages that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy a great overall performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based web applications at no extra cost when you buy any of our dedicated servers hosting and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is insert the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
