Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site expands and there’re numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud website hosting package that we’re offering, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with several clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should pass through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can give you with only a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for different websites, you will be able to pick the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will need to include the location of the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will choose a random port to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of any of your applications or to shut down/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS packages that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with such software, as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be allocated automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for plenty of sites and enjoy an astonishing performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to remove or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you haven’t used Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the directory path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation on the total number of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each application, and so on.
