Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly speed up the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems 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 Internet site expands and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or online chat applications, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with each and every website hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active web hosting account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to get. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you like. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it’s included with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for managing multiple real-time web-based apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you would like to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to make this. You will just have to indicate the location of the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also choose a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes with all dedicated servers on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to insert the path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and use at the same time and you’ll have full command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and many others.
