Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites which support live communication. Some instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional system, which can exert an enormous influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which cloud website hosting plan you have selected during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it in case you don’t require it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can check a given app’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS service that we offer and you can activate it without any complications, even if you have not used it beforehand, as Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You have to insert the location of the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated service for your script-driven apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. As our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you run numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or removed separately and you will get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
