Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting that we are offering include Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to select the location of your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number assigned by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with only several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use GUI, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your applications or to terminate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an optimal option for hosting multiple real-time script-driven apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You will simply have to specify the path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take full advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your physical server is set up. As Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without any problems, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you want on our really powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without any effort.
