Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking I/O system intended for sites that offer live interaction. A few instances of such websites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, much more information can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can have an enormous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting offered by us include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an extremely user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will need to enter the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be restarted or shut down separately and you can view the output of your applications with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting packages that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for any web-based application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a restriction on the amount of instances that you can make use of, you can make full use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not experience any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only have to add the 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. Furthermore, our system will also allocate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, 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 Servers Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you will be able to make that without coming across any obstacles, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our incredibly powerful servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
