Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s 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 whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser-based games or online chat platforms, for instance, and a lot of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with several mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should pass through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can set it up with just a couple of mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for several sites, you can activate more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also choose a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has an intuitive graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one click.

The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You have to add the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will select randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web apps at no additional cost if you acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an intuitive interface, which will enable you to start/terminate/restart any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to activate it is specify the path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be designated automatically too and you will see the upsides of using Node.js momentarily.
