Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform devised for websites that offer live interaction. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can exert a significant effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section 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 your account. You can select the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app 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 hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, in case it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is offered as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints concerning the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect choice for managing different real-time script-based web applications and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You’ll only need to specify the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also choose a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the apps and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to define the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
