Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser games or instant messaging clients, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you wish to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting services offered by us and you can set it up without coming across any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, as Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web apps as you need, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You have to enter the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers hosting for your script-powered software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is integrated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you will get great results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it really easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has selected a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deleted separately and you’ll receive access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
