Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need live communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site expands and there’re numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser video games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with each cloud hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should go through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use graphical interface, you will need to indicate the path to 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 allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints regarding the number of web sites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages an optimal choice for setting up numerous real-time web applications and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons with no previous experience, so if you would like to enable Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You will just need to specify the path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a given port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to check the apps’ output and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers for your script-powered web apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you will get excellent performance even if you host lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or terminated independently and you’ll be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
