Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat clients, for instance, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you’ll have to specify the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can set it up without encountering any problem, even if you’ve never used it before, as the Hepsia Control Panel has a user-friendly, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The platform can be used for as many script-powered applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You need to specify the directory path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no additional charge if you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a user-friendly GUI, which will enable you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll need to do to activate it is indicate the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically as well and you will notice the benefits of using Node.js instantaneously. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full capacity of your applications and to enjoy the best achievable performance.
