Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system designed for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically 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 once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other system, which can have a substantial influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each shared website hosting package offered by our company, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to define the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS services that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-based software application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t put any limitation on how many instances you can set up, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not come across any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will only have to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also choose a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you can view the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting services on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total amount of instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
