Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser video games or web-based chat systems, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every web hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you wish to add. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should proceed through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to delete an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so in case you’d like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that the system can give you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you will need to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will specify a random port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting that we are offering and you can configure it without any problems, even if you have not used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy to work with, point-and-click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many applications as you want, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to define the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to define the directory path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
