Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O system designed for sites which offer live interaction. Several instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When a given form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any other platform, which can have a great impact on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting plan offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can get it with only a few mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for several websites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to stop any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-based software app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t put a limit as to the number of instances that you can create, you can take advantage of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will just have to indicate 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 address. In addition, our system will also designate a port number to access the file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you’ll be able to see your apps’ output and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting services on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to enter the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
