Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for sites which support live interaction. Several examples of such websites are online browser-based game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site noticeably. If some form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a serious impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to order. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection should go through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s available with all our packages and you can add it to your account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be restarted or stopped separately and you can view your apps’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is included as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints as to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for building multiple real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to do it. You’ll only need to add the location of the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also set 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 make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total amount of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
