Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous I/O system meant for websites which support real-time communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform processes the information sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a significant influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

When you host a web application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the hosting plan that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose how many instances you wish to add to your 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 add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to reboot each instance separately, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each and every plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with each of the Linux VPS servers that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple sites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-based web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is available in our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you use lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses Node.js.
