Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous input/output system used for Internet sites which support interactive communication. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional system, which can exert an enormous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. 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 a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each and every plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for each software app that you host on the VPS. Since we haven’t set any limit on the amount of instances that you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not have to deal with any impediments while using the platform. You’ll simply have to add the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you can check the output of your apps and to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you like on our really powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
