Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform meant for websites that offer interactive communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site substantially. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to stop it if you do not want it anymore. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or removed independently and you can see the output of your apps with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with each of the Linux VPS service that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to shut down or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated service for your script-powered apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as the event-driven platform is included in our custom tool. Since our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you run lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or stopped independently and you will be provided with access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
