Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O system designed for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information sent between the site and its users in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional platform, which can exert an enormous effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared website hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to turn off an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different Internet applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will need to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can see your apps’ output with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for building different real-time web apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll only have to specify the location of the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see the output of the apps and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is very simple to use, you will be able to make that without any problems, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
