Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform designed for Internet sites that support real-time communication. A few instances of such sites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the top IT corporations such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host a web app on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to restart each instance separately, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can enable it with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available as standard with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for setting up numerous real-time applications and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You will just have to enter the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to use one of our dedicated hosting services for your script-powered applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you will get stunning results even if you run a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you will be granted with access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
