Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output system meant for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can include the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can use the power that Node.js can give you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you will need to enter the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will set a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us and you can activate it without coming across any problem, even if you have not used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything without effort. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you need, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You will have to enter the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS 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 activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
