Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser games or online chat software, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this cutting-edge platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to specify the location of your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number designated by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use this event-driven platform for each web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a restriction on how many Node.js instances you can add, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point & click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any problems while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll simply have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to view the output of your apps and to remove or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is built into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are quite powerful, you will get superb performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Indicating the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or stopped independently and you will acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
