Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output system devised for Internet sites that offer live communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any traditional system, which can exert a significant effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to the 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 insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different Internet sites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting plans offered by our company and you can activate it without the need to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as Hepsia has an intuitive, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you need, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You need to specify the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to remove 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

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform once your machine is set up. Since Hepsia is amazingly easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without having any predicaments, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you need on our ultra-powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
