Node.js is an advanced, event-driven asynchronous I/O system devised for Internet sites which offer interactive communication. A few examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Therefore, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can have a significant effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every cloud website hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to turn off an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it’s available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. After that, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or terminated separately and you can see your apps’ output with just several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this platform for each script-based software app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t imposed a restriction on how many instances you can activate, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not encounter any obstacles while working with the platform. You will just need to include the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to view your applications’ output and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web applications at no extra charge when you order one of our dedicated hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is insert the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be set automatically as well and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
