Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform designed for Internet sites which offer live communication. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any traditional system, which can have a great impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to reboot each instance independently, in case it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can get it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can enable more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as including the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is available as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect option for setting up numerous real-time web apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just need to enter the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your dedicated server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without having to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our exceptionally powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this through the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
