Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses 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 tremendously enhance the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is 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 handled much faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser games or online chat applications, for instance, and many corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is included with each semi-dedicated server package offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also select a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see a given app’s output or to start/restart/discontinue any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for each web-based app that you run on the VPS. As we have not set a restriction on the amount of Node.js instances that you can add, you can make the most of the power of our VPSs and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t experience any obstacles while using the platform. You will only need to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to see the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered software applications at no additional cost in case you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-navigate interface, which will permit you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to set it up is indicate the location of the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be set automatically as well and you will see the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously.
