Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system devised for websites which offer real-time interaction. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a significant effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud web hosting plan you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to terminate it if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also have access to the output code with only one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can order it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to order new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans offered by us and you can configure it without encountering any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, since Hepsia offers a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll have to add the path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you will be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered apps at no extra charge if you acquire any of our Linux dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a user-friendly GUI, which will allow you to start/delete/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the advantages of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
