Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system used for websites that offer real-time communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can have a noticeable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to add the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it if you don’t require it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our packages and you can activate it with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for different web sites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as adding the path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for each script-based software app that you host on the VPS. As we have not put a limitation on the number of instances that you can create, you can take advantage of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not have to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You will simply have to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also specify a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you will be able to see your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your physical machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you like on our powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
