Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output system meant for sites that offer real-time interaction. A few instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable 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 types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each cloud hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. Then, you will have to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or shut down independently and you can check your apps’ output with only a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations as to the number of sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages an excellent choice for building multiple real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll only need to add the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
