Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser video games or live chat software, for example, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every website hosting plan that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you’d like to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you want. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will pass through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to remove an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will need to indicate the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select whether the path to the particular app should go through a dedicated IP – in case you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you can view your applications’ output with only several clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can activate Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few clicks of the mouse even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to add the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of websites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to delete or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-driven apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, as the event-driven platform is included in our in-house developed tool. Since our servers are truly powerful, you will get stunning results even if you use a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it very easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or canceled independently and you’ll receive access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
