Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based games or online chat applications, for example, and many corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with every shared website hosting package offered by our company, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can get more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints as to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for managing different real-time script-powered applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to do it. You will simply have to enter the path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the apps’ output and to reboot or to stop any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional charge, as the platform is available in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will enjoy superb results even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or shut down separately and you will have access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
