Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O system built for Internet sites that support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared to any other system, which can have an immense effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu 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 your account. You will be able to choose 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 appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert 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 that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-powered web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t imposed a limit as to the number of instances that you can activate, you can make the most of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t come across any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also allocate a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one click, you’ll be able to see your applications’ output and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house built tool. As our servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb results even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or shut down separately and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
