Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform intended for sites which offer live communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can exert a remarkable effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you’d like 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 accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected 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 to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have 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 the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see the output of a given app or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS packages that we offer and you can activate it without any predicaments, even if you have not used it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll need to add the directory path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this platform as soon as your machine is set up. Since Hepsia is very easy to use, you will be able to make that without having any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you wish on our very powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
