Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites that offer real-time communication. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other platform, which can have a huge effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud web hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it with just several clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by us and you can set it up without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have never used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered web apps as you need, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You have to specify the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no extra cost if you purchase one of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you’ll need to do to activate it is include the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be allocated automatically as well and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
