Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform built for websites that offer live communication. Some examples of such websites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting package you’ve picked during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to disable it if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to specify the location of 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 Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for each software app that you host on the VPS. As we have not imposed a restriction on how many instances you can activate, you can take advantage of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to include the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you can check your applications’ output and to deactivate or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is really easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without any complications, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP 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 exceptionally powerful machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
