Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system intended for sites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such websites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a tremendous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

You can use Node.js with each hosting package offered by us, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can see your apps’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions regarding the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal option for running different real-time script-powered apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior 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 do it. You’ll just have to specify the folder path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the output of the apps and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-based applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is included in our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are quite powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you use multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Inserting the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or deactivated independently and you will be given access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
