Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system used for sites which offer live communication. A few examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other system, which can have a serious impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to remove an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you’d like to use it for multiple sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as entering the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to order new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for each script-driven software application that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed a limit on the number of instances that you can use, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any obstacles while working with the platform. You’ll only need to indicate the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you will be able to check the output of your apps and to cancel or to reboot any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra fee if you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is indicate the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
