Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site expands and there’re lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or web-based chat portals, for example, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every shared hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you’d like to order. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the given application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or terminated independently and you can check your apps’ output with just a few mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent option for hosting multiple real-time web-based apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You’ll just have to indicate the location of the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also choose a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the applications’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting services on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to define the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll exert complete command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, etc.
