Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform built for sites which offer live communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional platform, which can have a remarkable impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All Linux cloud website hosting offered by us support Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to choose the location of your .js app and to select 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 platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the active instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an extremely simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or terminated independently and you can check the output of your apps with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-based app that you run on the VPS. As we have not set any limit as to how many instances you can make use of, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not need to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You will simply need to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you can view your apps’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is pretty easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you want on our amazingly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
