Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for example, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared website hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to delete an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our packages and you can set it up with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for multiple websites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your running instances, to order new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal option for hosting numerous real-time script-driven web applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll just need to include the location of the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to delete any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you can unveil its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to specify the directory path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
