Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser video games or instant messaging apps, for example, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting plans that we are offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number given by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a very easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers support Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different web sites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI, you will have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for managing multiple real-time script-powered web apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You will simply have to enter the location of the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to insert the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you will exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
