Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform built for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several instances of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any traditional platform, which can exert a serious impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you use. 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 a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like 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 indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our packages and you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for different websites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your running instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal choice for hosting numerous real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You will just have to insert the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and so on.
