Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system meant for websites which support live interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other system, which can have a tremendous effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host a web app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that 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 add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can enable it with only several clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to get new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-driven app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set any limitation on how many Node.js instances you can create, you can make the most of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not experience any impediments while using the platform. You will just need to add the 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 address. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you will be able to see your apps’ output and to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to insert the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
