Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For instance, if 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 and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the site expands and there are numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser games or online chats, for example, and numerous companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every shared hosting plan that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you wish to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide if the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to shut down an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated packages and you can order it with just several clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for several websites, you can get more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as specifying the path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this platform for each script-driven app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not set any restriction on the number of Node.js instances that you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive, point & click graphical interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you won’t have to cope with any problems while using the platform. You’ll only need to enter the folder 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. What’s more, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective Control Panel section. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to see the output of your applications and to delete or to reboot any instance hosted on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven applications at no extra charge if you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is define the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be set automatically too and you will notice the upsides of using Node.js straight away. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
