Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser games or online chat apps, for example, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared web hosting plan you have selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you would like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it if you no longer need it. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can get it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for several web sites, you can create more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as including the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS hosting plans that we’re offering and you can activate it without experiencing any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-use, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to define the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional cost when you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will enable you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is specify the location of the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
