Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser-based games or online chats, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you have picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can enter the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to get access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to terminate it if you do not need it anymore. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also select a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check a given app’s output or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed VPS servers offered by our company and you can configure it without coming across any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you like, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You will have to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to indicate the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total number of instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to terminate/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
