Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser-based games or live chat systems, for example, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which shared hosting plan you have picked during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you can enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to remove it in case you no longer require it. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, as it is available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be restarted or shut down independently and you can view your apps’ output with only several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS packages that we offer and you can set it up without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to define the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to include the location of the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limitation as to the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you will exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
