Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time browser-based games or live chat systems, for instance, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to restart each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with only several clicks. If you’d like to use it for multiple websites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as specifying the folder path to 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 take full advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also select a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to stop any of your running instances, to activate new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS hosting plans that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-based application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set a limit on the number of Node.js instances that you can add, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not encounter any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You’ll only have to add the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether 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 find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-based apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, as this event-driven platform is available in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are rather powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it really easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you’ll have access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
