Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform designed for websites that offer real-time communication. Some instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional platform, which can exert a remarkable effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of any of your apps or to remove/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty simple to use, you will be able to do that without encountering any problem, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js 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 set up as many Node.js instances as you wish on our powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
