Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking input/output system devised for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular 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 once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional system, which can exert a remarkable impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you are using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll 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 during the process, you can also select if the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can check the output of your applications with only several clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As Hepsia is quite easy to work with, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any complications, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file.
