Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform used for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one massive 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 types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional system, which can exert a serious effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every web hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see a given application’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-based web application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a limitation as to the number of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can make the most of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will simply have to insert the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to see your apps’ output and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based applications at no additional cost in case you buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages 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 via an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will permit you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you have 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 randomly generated port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
