Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser games or online chats, for example, and numerous companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with several clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service come with Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that the system can offer you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will allocate a random port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of each of your apps or to cancel/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-driven app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t put a restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can create, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click interface, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You’ll just have to include the folder 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 address. Furthermore, our system will also set a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you can view your apps’ output and to terminate or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unleash its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to specify the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total amount of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etcetera.
