Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O system designed for Internet sites which offer live communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which web hosting package you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also have access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will select a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based software app that you host on the VPS. As we have not put any limit on the number of instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not have to deal with any difficulties while using the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to check the output of your apps and to terminate or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the platform once your physical machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is exceptionally simple to work with, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our incredibly powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
