Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system built for websites which offer real-time interaction. Several examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website substantially. If a given form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large 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 writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can have a noticeable effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can use the power that Node.js can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we are offering and you can set it up without any predicaments, even if you have not worked with it before, as Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll have to include the path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to stop/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
