Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system devised for sites that support live interaction. Some examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional system, which can exert a great influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you have picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to that 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 can restart an instance or to delete it if you do not want it any longer. You will also receive access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, as it comes with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia 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 choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given app’s output or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS that we are offering and you can set it up without any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, as Hepsia has an intuitive, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you want, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to specify the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra charge if you get any of our dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is enter the folder path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
