Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform intended for Internet sites that support live communication. Several instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. When a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast with any conventional platform, which can have a noticeable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package offered by our company, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can use the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to remove/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can set it up without any obstacles, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an intuitive, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web applications as you need, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to include the directory path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to insert the path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total number of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
