Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can substantially improve the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser-based games or live chat programs, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should go through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our plans and you can activate it with just several mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for different web sites, you can enable more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as easy as including the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your existing instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can get Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with such software, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory 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 one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an exceptional overall performance. Quick-access links in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the platform as soon as your machine is set up. As Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js with ease.
