Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O system designed for Internet sites which support live communication. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a significant influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting package you have selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to add the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t want it anymore. You will also be granted access to the output code with only a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for several sites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as adding the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect solution for running different real-time Internet apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You will just have to indicate the path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to indicate the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
