Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system intended for Internet sites which offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information exchanged between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the site significantly. If a given form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional platform, which can exert a noticeable effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting plans offered by our company include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number given by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a really user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our plans and you can get it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for different sites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as adding the path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to see your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as the platform is integrated into our in-house developed tool. Since our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has designated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or removed separately and you will receive access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
