Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the online users and can tremendously boost the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat applications, for example, and a lot of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting package you have selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you’d like to use – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to define the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you do not need it anymore. You’ll also gain access to the output code with just one mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different web sites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate interface that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the platform for any script-based software app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a restriction as to the amount of instances that you can set up, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you will not encounter any difficulties while using the platform. You’ll just have to include the folder 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 address. What’s more, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you can view your apps’ output and to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance running on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to include the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any limitation as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you will exert full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etc.
