Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites which offer live communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can order it with only a few mouse clicks. If you want to use it for several Internet sites, you can activate more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-powered software app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a limit as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can add, you can make use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not experience any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You’ll simply need to specify the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you can see your applications’ output and to discontinue or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to include the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will have total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etcetera.
