Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites that offer interactive communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the web 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 one. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional system, which can exert a huge effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your 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 hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. After that, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or cancelled independently and you can see the output of your applications with just several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to shut down or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use the platform once your server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is really simple to use, you will be able to do that without any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our super-powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
