Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site expands and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or live chat software, for example, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which web hosting plan you have chosen upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to indicate the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also receive access to the output code with only a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps 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 will need to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also select a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the 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 number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for many websites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-driven software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are really powerful, you’ll enjoy great results even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or stopped separately and you’ll be granted with access to a detailed output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
