Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven I/O platform meant for sites which support real-time communication. A few examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other system, which can have a serious impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to restart each instance independently, if necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check the output of a given application or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting service that we are offering and you can configure it without having any difficulty, even if you have not used it before, since Hepsia offers a user-friendly, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You have to indicate the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy any of our dedicated service for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as the event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you use many Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you’ll acquire access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
