Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform meant for sites which support interactive communication. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When a given form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any other system, which can have a noticeable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans offered by us include Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to specify the precise location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number selected by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a truly simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped independently and you can see the output of your apps with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS plans that we offer and you can configure it without any difficulties, even if you have never used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You need to include the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no additional fee when you get any of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate interface, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to set it up is enter the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
