Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform used for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Several instances of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional system, which can have an immense effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each website hosting package that we are offering, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to turn off an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can view the output of your applications with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can configure it without experiencing any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll need to insert the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered applications at no additional charge when you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate interface, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is specify the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port will be set automatically too and you’ll notice the advantages of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
