Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, once any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site expands and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser video games or instant messengers, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

All Linux cloud web hosting services offered by us support Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set the precise path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port assigned by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, change the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite user-friendly graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated package that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have 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 to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also select a random port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS offered by us and you can activate it without encountering any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it before, as Hepsia has an easy-to-use, point-and-click graphical interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The platform can be used for as many web-based applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll have to insert the path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to stop or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very intuitive, you’ll be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many Node.js instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to check the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without efforts.
