Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat software, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to cancel an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it is available with all our plans and you are able to add it to your account with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or stopped separately and you can see the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS packages offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for many sites and enjoy a superb performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered software apps at no extra charge if you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/deactivate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you have to do to set it up is include the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
