Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there are plenty of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or online chat clients, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web application that you’ve got, irrespective of which hosting package you’ve selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you will be able to define the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to stop it if you do not want it anymore. You will also acquire access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, as it’s included with each and every package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage 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 choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to check the output of a given application or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting that we are offering and you can set it up without having any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it beforehand, because Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many web applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will have to include the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your 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 add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this platform once your dedicated server is assembled. As Hepsia is really simple to use, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you want on our extremely powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
