Node.js is an advanced, event-driven I/O platform built for sites that offer live interaction. A few examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can have an immense effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting plans that we offer include Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the location of your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can get it with only several clicks. If you’d like to use it for several sites, you can activate more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to reboot and to deactivate any of your running instances, to create new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based software app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not imposed a limitation as to how many Node.js instances you can add, you can take advantage of the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not experience any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply need to specify the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also specify a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, since the platform is integrated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are very powerful, you will get stunning results even if you host multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes several clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or deleted separately and you’ll get access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
