Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform designed for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can exert a huge effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the 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 use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you wish to add to your 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 define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any software application that you host on the VPS. Since we have not put a limitation as to the amount of instances that you can activate, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t have any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to enter 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. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of this platform once your machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty easy to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with ease.
