Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser-based games or online chat portals, for example, and many companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with every shared hosting plan offered by our company, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to run. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it with only a few clicks. In case you wish to use it for different web sites, you can get more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as including the path to your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also set a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to discontinue any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers offered by our company and you can configure it without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not used it before, since Hepsia offers a user-friendly, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything effortlessly. The platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you wish, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual machines with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll need to enter the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just a click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra fee if you get one of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is include the directory path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js immediately. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
