Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser-based games or live chat clients, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

As Node.js is available on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which cloud website hosting plan you have chosen during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to specify the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you do not need it anymore. You will also be granted access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is included with each semi-dedicated server package offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS hosting that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with similar software, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder 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 VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual servers for multiple websites and enjoy an incredible performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting 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 event-driven platform is built into our in-house built tool. As our servers are really powerful, you’ll get stunning performance even if you manage multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it pretty easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has chosen a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or canceled independently and you’ll acquire access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
