Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform intended for sites that offer interactive communication. Some instances of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any conventional system, which can have an immense impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan offered by us, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS hosting offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to add the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit as to the total amount of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
