Node.js is an advanced, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system designed for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. Several examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which boosts the speed and the performance of the website substantially. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled out by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any traditional platform, which can exert a great impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also be provided with access to the output code with just a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is available with each and every plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect option for running numerous real-time Internet apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals with no prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll only need to specify the location of the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers

As the Hepsia Control Panel is really user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you wish on our really powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
