Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites which offer live interaction. A few instances of such sites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any script-powered web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any limit as to the number of instances that you can run, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any impediments while using the platform. You will only have to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to view the output of your apps and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to indicate the path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick 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 limit on the total number of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll have complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etcetera.
