Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and many companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud hosting that we offer support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to pick the exact location of your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the location of the .js app or check the running instances’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for multiple websites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical 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 allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to discontinue any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any script-powered app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not put any limitation as to how many instances you can create, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t need to deal with any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll just have to enter the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also assign a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to see your applications’ output and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get any of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you’ll acquire access to a comprehensive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
