Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system used for Internet sites which support live interaction. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional system, which can exert a remarkable impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it in case you do not require it anymore. You will also have access to the output code with only a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can get it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can order more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate interface that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for any script-based software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not imposed a restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll only need to enter the 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. What’s more, our system will also assign a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to indicate the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
