Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for Internet sites which offer real-time communication. Several examples of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional platform, which can exert a noticeable impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few mouse clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or stopped independently and you can check the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS servers offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is truly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for numerous sites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to remove or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this event-driven platform once your server is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is really simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any predicaments, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
