Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser games or online chat software, for instance, and many corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to add. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to restart or to terminate an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you’d like to host any real-time app on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to insert the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will assign a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to see the output of each of your applications or to stop/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for each script-driven software app that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed a limitation on the number of Node.js instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our VPSs and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t need to deal with any impediments while working with the platform. You’ll just have to specify the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also specify a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you can check your applications’ output and to shut down or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, as the event-driven platform is included in our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you host multiple Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or stopped separately and you will acquire access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
