Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform meant for websites which support real-time interaction. A few examples of such sites are online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information sent between the site and its visitors in tiny bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional system, which can exert a noticeable effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number set by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js app or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you will have to insert the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
