Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system intended for sites that offer interactive communication. A few instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can exert a huge impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud website hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can activate it without any problems, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy to work with, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web apps as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You have to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as this event-driven platform is built into our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are pretty powerful, you will get superb results even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has designated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or deactivated separately and you will get access to an in-depth output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
