Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output system used for websites which offer real-time communication. Several instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any other system, which can exert a substantial influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the folder path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
