Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O system meant for websites which offer live interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which hosting plan you have picked at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can specify the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to terminate it in case you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also get 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-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. If you’d like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can order more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for building different real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks to do it. You will simply have to add the location of the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered applications at no extra fee if you order any of our dedicated service and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to set it up is define the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port will be allocated automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
