Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system intended for sites that offer interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared to any traditional platform, which can have a tremendous impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud packages that we are offering come with Node.js and you are able to add this innovative platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the location of the .js app or see the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. As Hepsia is quite intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any difficulty, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
