Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser video games or live chat apps, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the website hosting plan that you are 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 several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means one application 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 hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, if it is needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is offered with all our plans and you can order it with only a few mouse clicks. In case you would like to use it for different websites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also assign a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to discontinue any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints in regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages a perfect option for building multiple real-time web applications and for getting the most out of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for individuals without any prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll just have to indicate the location of the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the applications and to reboot or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather simple and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and run at the same time and you’ll exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each application, and many others.
