Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output system meant for websites that offer live communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the performance of the website significantly. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively compared to any traditional platform, which can have a tremendous effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to turn off an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you will have to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints as to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal solution for managing different real-time web-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll simply need to add the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to see the output of the applications and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get any of our dedicated servers for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is integrated into our custom tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or canceled separately and you’ll have access to a detailed output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
