Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O platform built for sites that support live communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site substantially. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one sizeable chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional platform, which can exert an immense effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve picked at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it in case you no longer need it. You’ll also have access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with interface, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an optimal choice for building numerous real-time script-based apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll simply have to enter the location of the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, etc.
