Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled 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 sizeable hunk of information is then delivered 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 are numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or live chat software, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting that we offer support Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js application and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port set by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js app or see the active instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, because it’s available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can select the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated 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 choose if the path to the particular application will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or terminated separately and you can view the output of your applications with just several clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect choice for running different real-time web apps and for taking full advantage of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users without any prior experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just have to enter the folder path to the .js file in question and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house built tool. As our servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll enjoy superb performance even if you run lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s interface will make it extremely easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has set 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 restarted or shut down separately and you’ll be provided with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
