Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O platform built for websites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can exert an immense influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All web hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to choose the precise path to your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port set by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the path to the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it’s available with all our packages and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers offered by our company and you can configure it without any complications, even if you haven’t used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to define the path to the .js file within your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this event-driven platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb results even if you host many Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will be provided with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
