Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat software, for example, and numerous corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each shared hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you wish to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to remove an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can pick the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will need to add the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be restarted or deleted separately and you can view your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS servers offered by our company and you can configure it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you’ve never used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you need, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to define the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-based software apps at no additional charge when you order one of our dedicated servers and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is define the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A random port number will be selected automatically too and you will see the advantages of using Node.js immediately. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to get the best conceivable performance.
