Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, input/output system used for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then sent as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared to any conventional system, which can have a noticeable influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app 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 choose if the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to restart each instance separately, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it is comes with all our plans and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. Then, you will need to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or deleted independently and you can check the output of your apps with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can run Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting services offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for plenty of websites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to cancel or to restart any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated web hosting for your script-powered apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll get great results even if you run a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated separately and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
