Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform meant for sites that support live interaction. Some instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one giant 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 info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional platform, which can have an enormous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS plans that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you have no experience with such software, as Hepsia is really intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to stop or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is exceptionally simple to use, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our stunningly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
