Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O system designed for websites that offer interactive communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia 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 can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your 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 indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you will have to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal choice for setting up different real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to include the location of the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your physical server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is quite user-friendly, you will be able to do that without coming across any problem, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many instances as you need on our stunningly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without effort.
