Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is 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 lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat systems, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can activate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for multiple web sites, you can enable more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The activation is as simple as inserting the location of your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js is offered by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect choice for setting up numerous real-time script-driven web apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You will just need to specify the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also choose a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the apps and to reboot or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since the event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you’ll get superb results even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it rather easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted independently and you will be given access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses Node.js.
