Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system used for sites which support real-time communication. Several instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can have an immense impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated 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 whether the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can see the output of your applications with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans offered by us and you can set it up without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, as Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by Node.js. You have to define the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to order any of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since the event-driven platform is available in our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you will enjoy stunning performance even if you manage numerous Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it very easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be restarted or stopped independently and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
