Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output system used for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website significantly. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional system, which can exert an enormous impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting plan you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to remove/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for any app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not put a limit on the amount of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not come across any obstacles while working with the platform. You will simply need to indicate the directory 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. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you can see the output of your apps and to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and many others.
