Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system built for websites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info exchanged between the website and its visitors in small bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the website significantly. If some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional platform, which can have an immense effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can use the power that Node.js can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of any of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple websites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this event-driven platform once your physical machine is set up. As the Hepsia Control Panel is exceptionally simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any problem, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without efforts.
