Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need live communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, once any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat clients, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you are able to add this advanced platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also permit you to choose the location of your .js app and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port allocated by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, because it comes with each and every semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS servers that we are offering and you can configure it without any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without effort. The platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You’ll need to include the directory path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
