Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven I/O platform designed for websites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can exert a considerable influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting plan you’ve chosen at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can indicate the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to disable it if you no longer want it. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each and every plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS plans that we’re offering and you can set it up without coming across any problem, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, because Hepsia has an intuitive, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will have to add the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no additional fee in case you get any of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a user-friendly GUI, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is enter the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be allocated automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
