Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven non-blocking input/output system used for Internet sites that support live communication. Some instances of such websites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can exert a tremendous influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to delete an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages an optimal solution for running different real-time script-based web applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll only need to enter the location of the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the event-driven platform once your machine is assembled. As Hepsia is pretty simple to work with, you will be able to make that without any impediments, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP 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 need on our amazingly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
