Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser video games or online chat portals, for instance, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting package you’ve selected during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to define the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you don’t require it any longer. You will also receive access to the output code with just one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans support Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will designate a randomly generated port to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your apps or to remove/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each script-driven web app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a limit as to the number of instances that you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll just have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you’ll be able to see the output of your applications and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the directory path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction on the total number of instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will exert full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
