Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, I/O system built for sites which support live interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any conventional system, which can have an immense effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the hosting package that you use. 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 several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be restarted or stopped separately and you can check your apps’ output with only several clicks.

Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it really easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or stopped independently and you’ll be granted with access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
