Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting plan you have selected during the order process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes after that, you’ll be able to add the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to restart an instance or to terminate it if you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just one click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, as it is available with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/delete any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use this platform for any web application that you host on the VPS. As we have not set any restriction on the amount of instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you won’t come across any obstacles while working with the Node.js platform. You’ll just have to indicate the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also designate a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to view your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the event-driven platform once your physical server is up and running. As Hepsia is quite easy to use, you will be able to do that without coming across any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our exceptionally powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without any effort.
