Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are plenty of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser games or online chat clients, for example, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a port for the connection. You will be able to stop or to restart each instance independently, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to insert the location of 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 specify a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to shut down/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS services that we are offering and you can activate it without any difficulty, even if you have not used it beforehand, because Hepsia has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based software applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to indicate the location of the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to buy any of our dedicated hosting services for your script-based apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the platform is integrated into our in-house built tool. Since our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you host multiple Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it very easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or deactivated independently and you will acquire access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
