Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser games or web-based chat platforms, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting package that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the 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 include the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers offer Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that the system can give you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive GUI, you’ll need to include the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will allocate a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of any of your apps or to remove/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS plans offered by our company and you can activate it without any obstacles, even if you haven’t worked with it before, because Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software apps as you want, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our VPS servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You will have to add the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to insert the path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limitation on the total amount of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will exert total control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
