Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system devised for websites that support live interaction. Some instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the site and its users in small bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any other system, which can exert a tremendous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you’ve selected during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to delete it if you don’t need it anymore. You will also receive access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you can make full use of the power that the system can offer you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All VPS hosting services that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the event-driven platform for each Internet app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put a limit as to the amount of instances that you can activate, you can take full advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any problems while using the Node.js platform. You will simply need to enter the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to view your applications’ output and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to enter the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etcetera.
