Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O platform built for websites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one large chunk 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 box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any conventional system, which can have a considerable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, as it is included with each and every semi-dedicated plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for each web app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t set any limit as to how many Node.js instances you can get, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you will not need to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just need to add the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click, you’ll be able to see the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
