Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the fields, 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 handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or online chat applications, for example, and many corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All Linux website hosting that we offer include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this avant-garde platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the precise path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port set by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, change the path to the .js app or see the running instances’ output with only several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform is offering, as it is available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for different web-based apps, you can select the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be rebooted or removed separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of the platform for each web-based app that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set a limit as to how many instances you can activate, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any difficulties while working with the Node.js platform. You will just have to specify the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also assign a port to access the file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to view the output of your apps and to stop or to restart any instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no additional charge in case you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an intuitive GUI, which will permit you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only a click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you need to do to set it up is specify the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of running Node.js immediately. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
