Node.js is an advanced, event-driven input/output system meant for websites which support live communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If some form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any other platform, which can have a tremendous influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish 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 write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or removed separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use the event-driven platform for each web application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a restriction as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t need to cope with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply need to add the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you will be able to check your apps’ output and to cancel or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web applications at no additional cost in case you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-work-with interface, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the benefits of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
