Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, once any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser-based video games or web-based chat clients, for example, and lots of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All Linux cloud website hosting that we offer include Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to set the exact path to your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number assigned by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or see the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated package offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS that we offer and you can configure it without any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia has a simple-to-use, point & click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web applications as you like, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll need to include the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make use of the platform once your physical machine is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is rather user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any difficulty, even if you have not worked with Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our very powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
