Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging software, for example, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the web hosting plan that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is included with each plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting services that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose 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 number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a fabulous performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to shut down or to restart any instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to use any of our dedicated hosting services for your script-based applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as this platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are rather powerful, you’ll enjoy great results even if you make use of multiple Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses Node.js.
