Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there are many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chat portals, for example, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud web hosting plan you have selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you would like to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to shut it down in case you don’t want it any longer. You will also receive access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud platform, you can use the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly GUI, you will need to insert the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will choose a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS web hosting services that we’re offering and you can configure it without any predicaments, even if you have not used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based software applications as you need, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that Node.js provides. You’ll need to specify the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional cost in case you get any of our Linux dedicated hosting services and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-use interface, which will permit you to start/stop/restart any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you aren’t very experienced, you will be able to use the platform, since all you will have to do to set it up is add the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of using Node.js instantly. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
