Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output system used for sites which support live communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one big 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 one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any other system, which can exert a great effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the location of the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra charge in case you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an intuitive interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is define the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the upsides of running Node.js momentarily. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
