Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, input/output system intended for websites which offer interactive communication. Several examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Therefore, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional system, which can exert a tremendous impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to stop it if you no longer require it. You will also be given access to the output code with only a click.

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, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can get it with only a few clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this platform as soon as your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is incredibly easy to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any problem, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many instances as you like on our incredibly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
