Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform devised for sites that support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any conventional system, which can have a substantial effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done 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 few minutes after you add this service to the account. You can select how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, as it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a limitation on the amount of instances that you can make use of, you can take advantage of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t come across any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll simply have to indicate the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you will be able to check your applications’ output and to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based apps at no additional fee in case you buy one of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a user-friendly interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you have to do to set it up is add the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll see the benefits of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
