Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser-based video games or live chat software, for instance, and a lot of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud hosting packages offered by us come with Node.js and you’ll be able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the exact path to your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number given by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, edit the path to the .js application or check the output of the running instances with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a really simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud platform, as it comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use the platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. Since Hepsia is pretty intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without having any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform 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 web sites. You can create as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
