Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly speed up the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or live chat platforms, for example, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting offered by us come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to specify the precise path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. If you want to use it for several websites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit as to how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our VPS servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an incredible overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to shut down or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to define the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total amount of instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to cancel/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
