Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser video games or online chat apps, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our advanced cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to 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 type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it comes with each and every semi-dedicated plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

You can get Node.js with each of the VPS services offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is truly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many sites and enjoy a great overall performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to add the location of the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to remove/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
