Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites that support live interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any other system, which can have a considerable impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with every web hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with several clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to order. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to delete an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud platform, since it is included with each semi-dedicated hosting package offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations when it comes to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal solution for managing different real-time script-powered web applications and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You’ll simply have to include the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as the platform is integrated into our custom-built tool. Since our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will get stunning results even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Indicating the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has selected a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
