Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform designed for Internet sites which support real-time communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in little bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable 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 one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any other platform, which can have a significant influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the 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 several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will need to enter the location of the .js file in your 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 in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks of the mouse even if you’ve got no experience with such software, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder 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 VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous sites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to cancel or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you manage lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted separately and you’ll be given access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
