Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can significantly speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, once any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat clients, for example, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud platform, since it comes with each and every plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’re able to check a given application’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting offered by us and you can configure it without any problems, even if you haven’t used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based software apps as you need, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to specify the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform once your machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you will be able to make that without experiencing any problem, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many instances as you wish on our super-powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
