Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat apps, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every shared web hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you’d like to run. One instance means that one 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 afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to select if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to check the output of each of your apps or to delete/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting packages offered by us and you can activate it without encountering any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel offers an easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You need to insert the directory path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven web apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since the platform is included in our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are unbelievably powerful, you’ll get stunning performance even if you use a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes several mouse clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated independently and you’ll acquire access to a detailed output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
