Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O system intended for sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can have a remarkable effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be restarted or stopped independently and you can check the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to terminate or to restart any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you can uncover its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
