Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s 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 handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser video games or online chat systems, for example, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each shared web hosting plan that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to turn off an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it’s available with each and every plan offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting plans offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of sites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to stop or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, you can unveil its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that they will use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you’ll have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
