Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform used for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any other platform, which can have a noticeable influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to set the precise location of your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number allocated by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or see the running instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
