Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or web-based chat platforms, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our plans and you can enable it with only a few clicks. If you want to use it for several Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as indicating the location of your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also set a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will allow you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to create new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for each script-powered app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put a limitation as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can create, you can use the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while working with the platform. You will just need to enter the folder 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 specify a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one click, you will be able to see your apps’ output and to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as this platform is available in our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll get excellent performance even if you use plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it very easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Inserting the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has chosen a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or terminated separately and you’ll receive access to a comprehensive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
