Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform meant for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any other platform, which can have an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select 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 later, you can insert the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to deactivate it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view a given application’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS packages that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of websites and enjoy a magnificent overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to delete or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no extra charge in case you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages 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 an intuitive graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you’ll have to do to set it up is add the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js instantly. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
