Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system built for websites which offer interactive communication. A few examples of such websites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast with any other system, which can exert a substantial influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one app 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 that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s available with all our packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you will need to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be restarted or terminated independently and you can view your applications’ output with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS hosting that we’re offering and you can set it up without coming across any difficulty, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You have to enter the location of the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to order one of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is built into our in-house developed tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll have access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
