Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system designed for websites which offer live communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any conventional system, which can exert a noticeable influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting package you have chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to include the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to choose the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you do not need it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for different web sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as entering the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to reboot and to cancel any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for a lot of websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to uncover its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and so on.
