Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform designed for sites that offer live interaction. Several instances of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the website substantially. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed once it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison with any other platform, which can have a great effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you have chosen upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you can insert the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to delete it if you do not want it any longer. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can order it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different web sites, you can activate more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your active instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the event-driven platform for any script-based software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set any limitation as to how many instances you can use, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not encounter any impediments while using the platform. You will only have to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also assign a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only a click, you will be able to view your applications’ output and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you can unveil its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to add the folder path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you will exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
