Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform meant for websites that offer live communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a considerable impact on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can make use of the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will need to specify 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 cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to remove/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for many websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to define the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
