Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based video games or live chat portals, for example, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, if necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can see the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting packages offered by our company and you can set it up without needing to deal with any problem, even if you have never worked with it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance that Node.js offers. You will need to enter the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
