Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system used for Internet sites which offer real-time communication. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can have a significant effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every website hosting plan offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to delete an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for many websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra charge if you purchase any of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate interface, which will enable you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is add the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js right away. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
