Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or web-based chat portals, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with every shared hosting package offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a few clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can use Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be set automatically too. There won’t be any constraints on how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for numerous websites and enjoy an excellent performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to delete or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as this platform is available in our custom-developed tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll enjoy great performance even if you manage multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it quite easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you’ll be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
