Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system used for Internet sites that support real-time communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If some form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a great effect on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you wish to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you’ll have to enter the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of any of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we’re offering and you can activate it without having to deal with any problem, even if you have not used it beforehand, since Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to add the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is extremely simple to work with, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you like on our incredibly powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
