Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system designed for Internet sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any conventional platform, which can exert an immense influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to restart each instance separately, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different Internet applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deleted independently and you can check the output of your applications with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we’re offering and you can activate it without any problems, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You have to include the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, etc.
