Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there are a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser-based games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to select the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to terminate it in case you no longer want it. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated services come with Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will need to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will designate a random port number to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to insert the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use the platform as soon as your physical machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is really simple to use, you will be able to do that without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll have to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our super-powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with no effort.
