Node.js is an innovative, event-driven I/O platform meant for Internet sites that offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, usually 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 content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any conventional system, which can have a significant effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each shared website hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you want to activate. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or removed separately and you can view your apps’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you’ve never used it before, since Hepsia has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will need to add the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly easy to work with, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any obstacles, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to deactivate it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
