Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform devised for Internet sites that offer live communication. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. When some form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one huge chunk 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 box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional platform, which can exert a serious impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it in case you do not want it anymore. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can give you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a random port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS servers that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous websites and enjoy an impressive performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as this platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you run numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or stopped separately and you will receive access to an in-depth output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
