Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system built for Internet sites that support live interaction. A few examples of such websites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one big chunk 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. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any traditional system, which can exert a great influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for different web sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing if 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 have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your running instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we offer and you can set it up without any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy to work with, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll have to define the location of the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
