Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can substantially boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to include the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to delete it if you do not need it any longer. You’ll also get access to the output code with just one click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can set it up with just several clicks. In case you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS plans that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is really intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on how many Internet sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of sites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite intuitive, you will be able to make that without the need to deal with any predicaments, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is insert 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 IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you like on our ultra-powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
