Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system intended for websites which offer real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any other platform, which can exert an immense influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the location of your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a really easy-to-use interface.

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can order it with only a few clicks. In case you want to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as indicating the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software.

All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy an astonishing performance.
