Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there are many people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat portals, for instance, and lots of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting that we are offering support Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port chosen by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js application or check the running instances’ output with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an amazingly easy-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can set it up with only several clicks. If you’d like to use it for several sites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as adding the folder path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also select a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to reboot and to shut down any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this event-driven platform for any script-based web app that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not set a restriction on how many Node.js instances you can add, you can take full advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point-and-click interface, so even if you are not tech-savvy, you will not have to cope with any difficulties while using the Node.js platform. You will only have to indicate the directory path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also specify a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just a click, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to terminate or to restart any Node.js instance running on the VPS server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of our dedicated hosting services for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is built into our in-house developed tool. As our servers are really powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have created can be restarted or deactivated separately and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
