Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output system intended for Internet sites which offer live interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional platform, which can exert a noticeable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which web hosting plan you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to delete it in case you do not need it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, as it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or removed independently and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints as to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect option for running multiple real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You will just have to include the path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total number of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
