Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat applications, for example, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we are offering come with Node.js and you can add this avant-garde platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact location of your .js app and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port chosen by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the location of the .js application or see the output of the active instances with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, because it’s comes with all our packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or removed separately and you can view the output of your apps with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans that we are offering and you can activate it without any impediments, even if you have not worked with it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many software applications as you want, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You need to enter the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house built tool. Since our servers are truly powerful, you will enjoy stunning results even if you use multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or discontinued separately and you’ll obtain access to a detailed output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
