Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent 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 processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there’re numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser games or live chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting plans offered by us include Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port chosen by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a very easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for different sites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can use Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will permit you to restart and to remove any of your running instances, to create new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can run Node.js with any of the VPS hosting plans that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy a wonderful overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance independently and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software applications at no extra cost when you order one of our dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/stop/restart any instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you need to do to set it up is indicate the folder path to 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 designated automatically as well and you will see the upsides of running Node.js instantly. By combining the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
