Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O system meant for websites which support live communication. Several instances of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional system, which can have an immense effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared plans offered by us come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the location of your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port assigned by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the path to the .js app or check the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an amazingly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with just several clicks. If you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as entering the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate interface that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for each script-based app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set any restriction as to the number of instances that you can make use of, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t encounter any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply need to specify the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one click, you’ll be able to check your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra charge when you get any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly graphical interface, which will enable you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will need to do to set it up is indicate the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be assigned automatically too and you’ll notice the advantages of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
