Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform built for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any traditional system, which can have a serious effect on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance separately, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can make use of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to stop/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we offer and you can set it up without having any problem, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will have to define the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you will have total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etcetera.
