Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can substantially boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser video games or instant messaging programs, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting offered by our company include Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to select the exact path to your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port allocated by our cloud system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s included with each and every package offered by us. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions as to the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an excellent choice for hosting different real-time web-based apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks to do it. You’ll just have to include the path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the apps’ output and to restart or to delete any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in just a couple of simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and many others.
