Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven input/output platform devised for websites that support live communication. Several instances of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any other platform, which can exert a noticeable influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which website hosting plan you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you no longer want it. You will also be granted access to the output code with only one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you will need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of each of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting plans that we’re offering and you can configure it without any difficulties, even if you have never used it before, because Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to insert the directory path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered applications at no additional cost if you get any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-use graphical interface, which will enable you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you have to do to activate it is indicate the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
