Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking input/output system devised for sites which support live communication. A few instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box 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 handled a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can exert a serious influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting offered by us support Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js app or check the output of the active instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a truly intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can set it up with just several clicks. If you wish to use it for different web sites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. 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 an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with each of the VPS plans offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add 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 address. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limits on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of sites and enjoy a fantastic overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section 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 Servers

When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, since this event-driven platform is built into our in-house developed tool. As our servers are pretty powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has designated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted separately and you will have access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
