Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O system devised for Internet sites that support live interaction. A few instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any other system, which can exert a great effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you have picked at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t need it anymore. You will also obtain access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will have to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you can check your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for any script-powered web app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t set any limit as to how many Node.js instances you can get, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have any impediments while using the platform. You’ll just need to insert the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also designate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can view your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to define the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you will exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
