Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably speed up the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser-based games or online chat programs, for instance, and many corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select the number of instances that you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can order it with only a couple of mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can create more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as indicating the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your running instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for any script-based web app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t set any restriction as to the number of instances that you can run, you can make full use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to cope with any problems while using the platform. You will just need to insert the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you can check the output of your apps and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this platform once your server is up and running. Since Hepsia is really easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without any impediments, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you want on our astonishingly powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without effort.
