Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform meant for sites which support real-time communication. Several examples of such websites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one big hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in contrast to any other platform, which can have a great effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting package you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not require it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available as standard with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions as to the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect choice for hosting multiple real-time script-driven web apps and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You will just have to indicate the folder path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also choose a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to view the output of the applications and to restart or to stop any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of this platform once your machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is rather simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without any problem, even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js 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 sites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our stunningly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done via the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
