Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is entered in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat systems, for example, and lots of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every hosting package that we offer, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a few clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you wish to run. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to check any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, since it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. After that, you will need to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or discontinued independently and you can check your applications’ output with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any script-based software application that you run on the VPS. Since we have not put a limit as to the amount of instances that you can run, you can use the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t need to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You will simply need to indicate the folder path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. Furthermore, our system will also choose a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just a click, you will be able to view the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the platform once your dedicated machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather user-friendly, you will be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you have not used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is include the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our ultra-powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js with no effort.
