Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site expands and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this advanced platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to select the precise path to your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port designated by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, edit the location of the .js app or view the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly user-friendly interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the access path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you run can be rebooted or deleted separately and you can see the output of your apps with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for any script-powered web application that you host on the VPS. As we have not set any restriction on how many Node.js instances you can add, you can make use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t encounter any impediments while working with the Node.js platform. You will simply have to insert the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to check the output of your apps and to delete or to restart any instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to unleash its true potential in just a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have complete control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
