Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output system designed for websites that offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the website and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any conventional platform, which can have a huge effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every web hosting plan that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with a few clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations regarding the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal choice for managing different real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll only need to indicate the location of the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the apps’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
