Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system intended for websites that support real-time communication. Some examples of such websites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the website and its users in small bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a great impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can use Node.js with each cloud hosting plan offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to stop an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is available with each semi-dedicated plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers offered by us and you can configure it without having to cope with any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it before, since Hepsia offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you need, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You have to add the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your server is up and running. Since Hepsia is amazingly user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you want on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
