Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or live chat clients, for example, and numerous companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each cloud website hosting plan offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to delete an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our packages and you can add it with only a couple of clicks. In case you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as including the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can use Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

You can make use of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use at the same time and you will have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
