Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous input/output platform built for websites that support interactive communication. Some examples of such websites are online browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any other system, which can have an immense impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting plan you have chosen upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to include the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to disable it in case you don’t require it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll need to add 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 add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or deactivated independently and you can see the output of your applications with only several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-powered web application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set a limitation as to the number of instances that you can get, you can make the most of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any difficulties while working with the platform. You will only have to indicate 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. In addition, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you will be able to check the output of your apps and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since the platform is available in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will get excellent results even if you run many Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or deleted independently and you will receive access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
