Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging applications, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting plan you’ve picked upon registration. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t need it any longer. You’ll also gain access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans come with Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with only several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of each of your applications or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use this event-driven platform for any web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t imposed a limitation as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can create, you can use the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just need to indicate the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you can check your apps’ output and to deactivate or to reboot any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional fee when you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is enter the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be set automatically too and you will notice the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
