Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system built for Internet sites that offer live communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can exert a great effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every web hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to specify 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 pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is included by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal option for setting up multiple real-time script-based applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to enter the location of the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also set a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to check the applications’ output and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etc.
