Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform meant for sites that offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional system, which can have a serious effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All Linux shared web hosting packages that we offer support Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port given by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an amazingly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll need to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or shut down separately and you can check the output of your apps with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such software, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder 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 randomly generated access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra cost if you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will permit you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you need to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full potential of your apps and to get the best conceivable performance.
