Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform built for websites that support real-time communication. A few examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the website substantially. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can exert a great influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting plans that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port selected by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the path to the .js app or view the active instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an amazingly easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with only several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will select a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting plans that we are offering and you can set it up without needing to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never used it before, since Hepsia offers a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to include the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since the platform is incorporated into our custom-developed tool. As our servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
