Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or online chat portals, for instance, and lots of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each and every shared website hosting package that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to discontinue an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that the system can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to pick the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate GUI, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to view the output of each of your applications or to remove/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent choice for managing different real-time script-driven apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to make this. You will just have to include the path to the specific .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a given port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to check the applications’ output and to reboot or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no extra charge when you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a user-friendly GUI, which will enable you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is enter the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be designated automatically as well and you will see the advantages of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make use of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
