Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and a lot of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud hosting package you have chosen at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you will be able to indicate the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you no longer want it. You will also gain access to the output code with only a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS hosting that we are offering and you can activate it without encountering any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based software applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll need to specify the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will select randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since this event-driven platform is incorporated into our custom Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you host many Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires several clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
