Node.js is an innovative, event-driven I/O platform devised for sites that support live communication. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the performance of the site noticeably. When some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert an immense influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be reachable through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to restart each instance separately, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud platform, as it comes with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also select a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect choice for hosting numerous real-time web apps and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just need to include the folder path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since this platform is available in our custom-built tool. As our servers are exceptionally powerful, you will enjoy great performance even if you manage lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or removed separately and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
