Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform designed for websites which offer live communication. Some examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge 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 writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional system, which can have a huge effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting services that we are offering include Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also allow you to select the exact path to your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, since it’s comes with all our plans 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 every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can choose 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 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 during the process, you can also select if the access path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or terminated separately and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS services that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use the platform for each app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a limit on the number of Node.js instances that you can use, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not experience any difficulties while working with the platform. You will only need to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also allocate a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to delete or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to order one of our dedicated hosting for your script-based web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you manage many Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will obtain access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
