Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can significantly improve the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat portals, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

When you host a web app on our innovative cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can order it with only several mouse clicks. In case you’d like to use it for several web sites, you can order more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to discontinue any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to check your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering and you can set it up without any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You have to enter the location of 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’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to add the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
