Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser video games or online chat applications, for example, and plenty of companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a few mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it’s available with each and every package offered by us. 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 are expected to do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for any web app that you host on the VPS. As we have not set a limit as to the number of instances that you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not come across any obstacles while working with the platform. You will only have to specify 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 designate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you’ll be able to check your applications’ output and to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered software apps at no extra fee if you obtain one of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you need to do to activate it is include the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js right away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
