Node.js is an innovative, event-driven non-blocking I/O platform used for websites that offer real-time communication. Several examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then delivered as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently as opposed to any traditional platform, which can exert a substantial effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you do not want it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with only one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting service support Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use interface, you’ll need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a random port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions as to the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for running multiple real-time web applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only need to indicate the location of the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

As Hepsia is pretty simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you have never used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you like on our super-powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
