Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking input/output system meant for Internet sites that offer live interaction. A few instances of such websites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional system, which can have an immense effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting plans that we are offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port allocated by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, modify the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. Then, you will need to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or discontinued separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any software application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a limit on how many instances you can make use of, you can make full use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not need to cope with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also allocate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to view your applications’ output and to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra cost if you buy one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an intuitive graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is define the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js straight away. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
