Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can substantially improve the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the site expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser games or online chats, for example, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the web hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be accessible via the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. Then, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the given app should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can check the output of your applications with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any script-based software app that you run on the VPS. As we haven’t put a restriction as to the number of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click interface, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you will not have any problems while working with the platform. You’ll only need to specify the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also allocate a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one mouse click, you can view the output of your apps and to discontinue or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to buy any of our dedicated web hosting for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since the platform is integrated into our custom tool. As our servers are rather powerful, you’ll get great results even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has set a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or stopped separately and you’ll be given access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
