Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for sites which support real-time communication. Some examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info sent between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can exert a tremendous effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting plan you have picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you will be able to add the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it if you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with only a couple of clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-powered web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any limit as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any impediments while using the platform. You will just need to specify the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you can view your applications’ output and to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom Control Panel tool. As our servers are rather powerful, you will get great results even if you run lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed independently and you’ll obtain access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
