Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, input/output system intended for websites that support interactive communication. Some instances of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the load speed and the overall performance of the website noticeably. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared with any other system, which can have an enormous influence on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the website hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also set a port for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, in case it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set any restriction on how many Node.js instances you can add, you can take advantage of the power of our servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point-and-click GUI, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to specify the folder path in the VPS 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 select a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-based software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you host numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has designated a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be rebooted or removed independently and you’ll receive access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
