Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or live chats, for example, and many corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each shared website hosting plan offered by us, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. In case you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can add more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as choosing the location of your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to stop any of your active instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations in regard to the number of sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans a perfect solution for building multiple real-time script-driven web applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to make this. You’ll only need to specify the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the applications and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will need to specify the directory path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can set up and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
