Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system meant for sites which offer live communication. A few instances of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website substantially. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the web 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 information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional system, which can have an enormous impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve chosen during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to pick the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to remove it in case you no longer need it. You will also receive access to the output code with only one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans support Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for any application that you run on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed a limit as to how many Node.js instances you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not encounter any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You will only need to include the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also select a port to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to stop or to reboot any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely user-friendly, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
