Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few mouse clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, as it is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can view the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS offered by our company and you can set it up without coming across any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you wish, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance that Node.js offers. You need to enter the path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to remove or to reboot them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated hosting for your script-based applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as this event-driven platform is included in our custom Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you use numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or stopped independently and you’ll be provided with access to an in-depth output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
