Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there are many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or live chat platforms, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

If you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it comes with each package that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also designate a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view the output of a given application or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers that we offer and you can configure it without the need to deal with any difficulty, even if you have never used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy to work with, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything effortlessly. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll need to add the directory path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no additional charge if you obtain any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will enable you to start/stop/reboot any instance or to check the output of the app that uses it with only one click. Even if you’re not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you need to do to set it up is add the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js immediately.
