Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O platform designed for websites which offer real-time communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site noticeably. When some form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, 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 content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a noticeable effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared services that we offer support Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the location of your .js app and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an extremely easy-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can order it with only a few clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different web sites, you can get more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as entering the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to remove any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each Internet application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not imposed a restriction on how many instances you can create, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will only have to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to delete or to reboot any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you can unleash its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to indicate the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
