Node.js is an advanced, event-driven input/output system built for websites that offer real-time communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any traditional system, which can exert a noticeable influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-powered web application that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set a limit as to how many instances you can add, you can make use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t experience any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll only need to specify the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click, you will be able to see your applications’ output and to remove or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the event-driven platform once your server is assembled. As Hepsia is quite easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you need on our amazingly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
