Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform intended for Internet sites which offer live communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a great impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting service that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the location of your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port designated by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-use graphical interface.

In case you wish to use it for several websites, you can order more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as including the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for many websites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.

Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you need to do to activate it is add the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be set automatically too and you will see the upsides of running Node.js right away.
