Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites that support interactive communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the website and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to 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 web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any conventional system, which can have a substantial impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each hosting package that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to run. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, since it is comes with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or deleted independently and you can check the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any web-based app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t set a limit on the amount of Node.js instances that you can use, you can make the most of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point & click interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any problems while working with the platform. You’ll only need to add the 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. Furthermore, our system will also set a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you’ll be able to view the output of your apps and to cancel or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the platform as soon as your server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without experiencing any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
