Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output system devised for sites which support real-time communication. A few examples of such sites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one big hunk 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 types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can have a remarkable influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared website hosting plan you have selected during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting 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. A couple of minutes after that, you can enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to delete it in case you no longer want it. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations regarding the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans a perfect solution for setting up multiple real-time script-powered applications and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you’d like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply need to insert the path to the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to view the apps’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to include the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll have full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etcetera.
