Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform built for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can exert a substantial effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which hosting package you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to add the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to terminate it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can get it with only several mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to get new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we offer and you can set it up without experiencing any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, as Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You need to define the directory path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to stop 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

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform once your dedicated server is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is amazingly intuitive, you will be able to make that without experiencing any predicaments, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you need on our amazingly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
