Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the website grows bigger and there are lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time browser-based video games or live chat software, for instance, and many companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which shared website hosting plan you’ve picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to define the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to discontinue it in case you no longer need it. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you want to use it for different web sites, you can enable more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as entering the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also select a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to cancel any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting services that we offer and you can configure it without any obstacles, even if you have never used it beforehand, since Hepsia has a user-friendly, point-and-click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many web apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You need to add the folder path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all instances and, with just one click, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no additional fee when you order any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a user-friendly interface, which will enable you to start/discontinue/restart any instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to set it up is add the folder path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the advantages of using Node.js momentarily. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your applications and to get the best possible performance.
