Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform built for websites that support real-time communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a considerable influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance separately, in case it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can set it up with just several mouse clicks. If you want to use it for several websites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages an ideal choice for setting up numerous real-time script-based web applications and for making the most of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll simply need to enter the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also choose a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view the output of the apps and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to define the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
