Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output system devised for sites that offer interactive communication. A few instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can exert an enormous effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our innovative cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance separately, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it is available with all our plans and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your 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 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 and every instance that you activate can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can view the output of your apps with only a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to terminate or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, as the platform is built into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you host many Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has chosen a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed separately and you’ll receive access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
