Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites that offer live communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional platform, which can have a serious effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no additional cost when you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will enable you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is enter the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the benefits of using Node.js right away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
