Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site expands and there are numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or online chat platforms, for instance, and lots of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every website hosting package offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with several clicks of the mouse. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you’d like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will go through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to discontinue an instance and to check the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select if the path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can see your applications’ output with just a few clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting plans that we are offering and you can configure it without experiencing any problem, even if you haven’t worked with it beforehand, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers a user-friendly, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your websites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will have to add the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-based software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since the platform is included in our custom tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you manage numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it quite easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Adding the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be restarted or deactivated independently and you will receive access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
