Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform meant for Internet sites which support real-time communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then submitted as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional platform, which can exert a significant influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you use. You can make this from 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 feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app 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 choose if the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to turn off or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it’s available with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick 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 IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for lots of sites and enjoy an excellent performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers for your script-powered web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since this platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you’ll be provided with access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
