Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, once any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser video games or live chat applications, for instance, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like 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 write the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to restart each instance independently, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can activate it with only several clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as indicating the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to check your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS service that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for multiple sites and enjoy a superb overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software applications at no extra cost if you obtain any of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-navigate GUI, which will allow you to start/delete/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is define the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll notice the advantages of running Node.js right away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
