Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O system meant for websites which offer real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional platform, which can exert a serious influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the hosting plan that you are using. You can make this 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 feature to your account. You can choose how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated service support Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will specify 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 view the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS servers that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an impressive overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to stop or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional charge in case you acquire any of our Linux dedicated service and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you need to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
