Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time web browser games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the web hosting package that you use. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a port for the connection. You will be able to disable or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it is available with each and every semi-dedicated package offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through 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 select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans an ideal choice for running numerous real-time script-based web apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than several clicks to make this. You will simply need to include the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the apps’ output and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will set a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run at the same time and you will exert total command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
