Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O system used for sites which offer live interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other platform, which can have a substantial influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to stop an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or terminated separately and you can check your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints concerning the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an excellent solution for running different real-time script-powered applications and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You will just 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 address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to include the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and so on.
