Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or live chats, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you want to activate – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you will be able to define the path to the app, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to stop it if you don’t want it anymore. You will also be granted access to the output code with just a click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each and every package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can view a given application’s output or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for any software application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we have not imposed any limit as to how many instances you can activate, you can make use of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any difficulties while working with the platform. You’ll just have to indicate the folder 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. What’s more, our system will also assign a port to access this file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to see the output of your apps and to remove or to restart any instance running on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven software applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since this event-driven platform is available in our custom-built tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you will get great results even if you manage numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or shut down independently and you’ll acquire access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
