Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser games or online chat systems, for instance, and many companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting services that we’re offering support Node.js and you will be able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to choose the precise location of your .js app and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number given by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, modify the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an amazingly easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it is included with each package offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a randomly generated port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting services that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy a splendid performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to cancel or to restart any instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated hosting services for your script-based software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you make use of numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or shut down independently and you will have access to a detailed output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
