Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or instant messaging programs, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which website hosting package you have selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can add the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it if you no longer want it. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offer Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time application on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can use the power that Node.js can offer you with only several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of each of your apps or to remove/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting packages that we offer and you can configure it without coming across any difficulty, even if you have never worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point & click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many web applications as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You need to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is available in our in-house built Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are pretty powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has chosen a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you will be granted with access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
