Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system intended for Internet sites that support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a serious impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the path to your .js application and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port designated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect solution for building multiple real-time web applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just have to include the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without having any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our very powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without effort.
