Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser games or live chat apps, for example, and many companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which hosting package you have selected at signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to delete it if you no longer require it. You’ll also get access to the output code with just a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to employ Node.js for different Internet apps, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to enter the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the access path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you activate can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you can check your applications’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS that we’re offering and you can activate it without having to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many script-based applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You have to enter the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no additional cost when you get any of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-work-with interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is specify the location of the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
