Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser video games or live chat platforms, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks of the mouse. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to order. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to use the power that the system can offer you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you will be able to pick the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will set a random port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of each of your applications or to delete/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

All VPS that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-driven application that you host on the VPS. As we have not set any limitation on the number of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can use the power of our Virtual Private Servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t need to deal with any obstacles while using the platform. You will simply need to indicate the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also select a port number to access this file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only a click, you can check your apps’ output and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes with all dedicated hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to enter the folder path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total number of instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to add new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
