Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and many companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud website hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to view the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s user-friendly GUI, you will have to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of each of your apps or to remove/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with any of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for lots of websites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to remove or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered software apps at no extra fee in case you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a user-friendly GUI, which will permit you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you have to do to set it up is specify the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be set automatically too and you will see the advantages of using Node.js immediately. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
