Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can substantially boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser games or online chats, for instance, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of each of your apps or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us and you can configure it without any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it before, because Hepsia has an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You will need to define the path to the .js file within your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the platform once your dedicated machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is amazingly user-friendly, you will be able to do that without any problems, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you like on our amazingly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without effort.
