Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser games or web-based chat systems, for example, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to pick the 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 number designated by our cloud hosting system. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a very simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting plan that we offer. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also allocate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is offered by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS packages an excellent solution for running numerous real-time script-based web applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you want to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do it. You’ll just need to specify the path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also choose a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as this event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are incredibly powerful, you will enjoy excellent results even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Entering the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or stopped separately and you will be given access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
