Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system devised for sites that support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can exert an immense impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every web hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to turn off an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes with all our packages and you can add it with only several mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your active instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.

You’ll have to specify the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.
