Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly speed up the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based games or online chat software, for example, and plenty of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud website hosting package you’ve picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you’d like to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not want it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each and every 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 semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, as Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on how many sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for many websites and enjoy an incredible performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of this platform as soon as your server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly simple to work with, you will be able to do that without having any predicaments, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is define the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many instances as you like on our incredibly powerful servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js with ease.
