Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time browser-based video games or online chat systems, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every shared web hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, as it is comes with all our plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you wish to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to specify the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or cancelled independently and you can check your apps’ output with just several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is amazingly intuitive and easy to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limit on how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual machines for many sites and enjoy a marvelous performance. Quick-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to indicate the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
