Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform designed for websites that offer live communication. Several instances of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any traditional system, which can exert an immense effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can activate it with only a couple of clicks. If you would like to use it for different Internet sites, you can activate more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your running instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations as to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an optimal choice for setting up different real-time script-driven web apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you want to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few clicks to do it. You will simply have to include the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of 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 stop any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as this event-driven platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you use numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or deleted independently and you’ll receive access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
