Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there are a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser games or online chat software, for example, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud plans that we offer support Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the exact location of your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number set by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the path to the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can enable it with only several clicks of the mouse. In case you wish to use it for several web sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to delete any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS web hosting plans that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can use this platform for any script-based software app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set any limitation on how many Node.js instances you can run, 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 user-friendly, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you will not have to cope with any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You will just have to specify the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you will be able to check the output of your applications and to deactivate or to reboot any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional cost in case you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate interface, which will allow you to start/deactivate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is enter the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
