Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous I/O platform built for websites that offer live interaction. Some examples of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information transmitted between the site and its visitors in little bits, which enhances the speed and the performance of the site noticeably. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then delivered as one big chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional system, which can exert a huge impact on the website’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud hosting plan that we offer, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a few clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you wish to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to make full use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s user-friendly graphical interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will assign a random port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to view the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.

All Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-driven application that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t set a restriction as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not encounter any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll only need to enter the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can check the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Since the Hepsia Control Panel is very user-friendly, you will be able to do that without any impediments, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you need on our unbelievably powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
