Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there are lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser games or web-based chat systems, for example, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our innovative cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting 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 your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your 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 type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can set it up with only several clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different sites, you can get more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your active instances, to create new ones or to see the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you do not have any experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions as to how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple websites and enjoy a terrific performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this platform as soon as your server is assembled. Since Hepsia is incredibly user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our really powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
