Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the site expands and there are lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or live chat clients, for example, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

When you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You will be able to choose how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can get it with just several clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use GUI that will permit you to restart and to cancel any of your active instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering and you can activate it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you have not used it beforehand, as Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You will have to enter the directory path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with only a click, you will be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to make use of any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is available in our in-house built tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it extremely easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has allocated a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or shut down independently and you will obtain access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
