Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser games or online chat clients, for example, and many companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you’ve picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you will be able to insert the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to terminate it if you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also be given access to the output code with only a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given application’s output or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we are offering and you can activate it without any impediments, even if you’ve never worked with it before, because Hepsia offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance offered by Node.js. You will need to include the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is assembled. Since Hepsia is quite simple to work with, you’ll be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many instances as you like on our incredibly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
