Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform designed for sites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a great influence on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting that we offer support Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port specified by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our packages and you can set it up with just several mouse clicks. If you’d like to use it for several Internet sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as indicating the path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to delete any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

You can run Node.js with any of the VPS packages offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you have no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many Internet sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of websites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to terminate or to reboot any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated hosting for your script-driven applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, as the platform is built into our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy great results even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has chosen a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or deleted separately and you’ll be provided with access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
