Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted 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 a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there’re a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or live chat portals, for instance, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each cloud web hosting package that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can enable it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for several websites, you can create more instances through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is included as standard with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints as to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for building multiple real-time web-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to make this. You’ll only need to insert the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to view the output of the applications and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered web apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-built tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll get great performance even if you use plenty of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has selected a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you will acquire access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
