Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous input/output system designed for sites that support real-time interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website substantially. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then sent as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select how many instances you want to add to the 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 specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for multiple web sites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as entering the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for administering multiple real-time script-powered apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You will simply have to enter the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a particular 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 applications and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no additional cost if you order any of our Linux dedicated hosting and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly graphical interface, which will permit you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js instantly. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full potential of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
