Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser games or instant messengers, for instance, and many companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you use. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or shut down independently and you can view the output of your applications with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available as standard with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions regarding the number of sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect solution for administering multiple real-time web apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You will only have to insert the folder path to the given .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to add the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you will have total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
