Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform intended for websites that offer real-time communication. Some instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole 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 once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can exert a huge influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, since it is is included with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped independently and you can check your applications’ output with only a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You’ll just have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to view the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any instance hosted on the VPS.

Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is insert the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP.
