Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser video games or online chat clients, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you wish to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can insert the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to terminate it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also receive access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can set it up with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can activate more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as choosing the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can activate Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to include the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple sites and enjoy a splendid performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of the event-driven platform once your physical machine is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is extremely simple to use, you will be able to do that without any complications, even if you have never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our really powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
