Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system meant for sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one giant chunk 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. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other system, which can exert a great effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting packages that we offer come with Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number designated by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered software applications at no additional charge in case you order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will permit you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is insert the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be designated automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
