Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser games or instant messaging clients, for example, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every cloud hosting plan that we offer, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform 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 afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting that we’re offering and you can configure it without needing to deal with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, since Hepsia offers an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software apps as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to include the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no extra charge if you acquire any of our dedicated servers hosting and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a user-friendly interface, which will permit you to start/stop/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is specify the location of the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically as well and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
