Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform intended for sites which support interactive communication. Several instances of such sites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the 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 once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other platform, which can exert a significant impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every shared hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated plans offer Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS servers offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the 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 VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based applications at no additional fee in case you order one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-work-with interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you will have to do to set it up is include the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be allocated automatically as well and you will see the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
