Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based games or online chat programs, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the website hosting plan that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting package offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it without any difficulties, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to indicate the directory path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform once your dedicated server is up and running. As Hepsia is really easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without having any complications, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many instances as you wish on our stunningly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
