Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat applications, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting that we’re offering support Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to choose the exact location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port designated by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a rather simple-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you wish to host any real-time app on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can use the power that the system can give you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly 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 address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will allocate a random port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of each of your applications or to remove/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks of the mouse even if you have no experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any limitations as to how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many sites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will allow you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform once your physical server is assembled. As Hepsia is incredibly easy to work with, you will be able to make that without any difficulties, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is specify the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can run as many instances as you wish on our astonishingly powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
