Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are many people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser games or online chat applications, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

All hosting plans offered by our company come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can select the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js application or see the running instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to 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 that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also set a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints when it comes to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent option for hosting numerous real-time script-based web apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will simply need to enter the location of the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the output of the applications and to restart or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an amazingly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unleash its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to define the location of the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limitation on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you’ll exert complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
