Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform built for Internet sites which offer live interaction. A few examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the website substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one big hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other system, which can exert a huge impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it in case you do not want it anymore. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with only a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with only several clicks. If you would like to use it for different sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as entering 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 make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for each script-based application that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t put a limitation on the number of Node.js instances that you can create, you can take full 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 via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not have to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will only have to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to check the output of your applications and to terminate or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven web apps at no additional cost if you get any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is indicate the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be set automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js straight away. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
