Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the website expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser-based games or web-based chat systems, for example, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You can use Node.js with each website hosting package offered by us, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared hosting account with a few clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to get. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to remove an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, because it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your plan. Then, you will need to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can view your applications’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, since Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to navigate. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port will be designated automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on how many Internet sites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of sites and enjoy a great performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to stop or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the event-driven platform as soon as your machine is set up. As Hepsia is exceptionally easy to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
