Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O system meant for websites that offer live communication. Several instances of such websites are online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the website and its users in small bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can exert a serious influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared 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 applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can include the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to disable it in case you don’t want it any longer. You will also get access to the output code with only one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can add it with only a couple of clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to delete any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-powered application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not set a limit on how many Node.js instances you can create, you can take full advantage of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not have to deal with any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will just need to indicate 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. In addition, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you can check the output of your applications and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to use the platform once your machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is exceptionally user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulties, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our amazingly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
