Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, input/output system intended for websites that offer interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any other system, which can have a substantial influence on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which website hosting package you’ve picked at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you don’t need it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can enable it with just several mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for several websites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as including the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for building different real-time script-powered web apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll just need to insert the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to delete any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
