Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O platform devised for sites that support interactive communication. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional system, which can exert a remarkable influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the web hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like 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 write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just several clicks. In case you wish to use it for different sites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal solution for building numerous real-time script-driven web applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will simply have to enter the path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll have complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
