Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking I/O system intended for sites that offer live communication. A few instances of such websites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other system, which can exert a remarkable impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will select a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can get Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of websites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is quite user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you need on our incredibly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
