Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based games or web-based chat platforms, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve picked upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to specify the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to deactivate it if you do not require it anymore. You will also have access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is rather intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy an astonishing overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to specify the directory path to the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total amount of instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you’ll exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and so on.
