Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat programs, for instance, and lots of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our advanced cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You can select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port for the connection. You will be able to terminate or to restart each instance independently, if it’s necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it is available with each plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting that we offer and you can activate it without the need to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many web apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to indicate the folder path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you full control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to make use of any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-based software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is integrated into our custom tool. Since our servers are quite powerful, you’ll enjoy great performance even if you use lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has set a port to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or removed independently and you’ll have access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
