Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser games or online chat software, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you have picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it in case you don’t want it anymore. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s comes with all our plans and you can add it to your account with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you wish to use Node.js for different web apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you add can be rebooted or deactivated independently and you can see your apps’ output with only several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting service offered by us and you can activate it without the need to deal with any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software applications as you need, so you can make the most of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that Node.js offers. You need to include the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will select randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to stop or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated service on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to specify the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
