Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based video games or instant messaging software, for example, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

If you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you want to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the web hosting plan that you’re using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this service to your account. You will be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is available with all our plans and you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for multiple web sites, you can add more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as specifying the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your active instances, to order new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included by default with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations with regard to the number of web sites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an ideal option for administering multiple real-time script-based applications and for getting the most out of each of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you want to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to make this. You’ll just need to enter the path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to make use of the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the apps’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of the event-driven platform once your physical server is up and running. As Hepsia is incredibly easy to work with, you will be able to make that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many instances as you like on our astonishingly powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to see the output of the application using it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js without efforts.
