Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, once any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there’re many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or online chat clients, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud hosting platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to disable or to restart each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated services come with Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you will have to add the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also allow you to view the output of each of your apps or to cancel/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

Node.js is included by default with each and every virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations in regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent choice for building multiple real-time script-powered web apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than several clicks of the mouse to make this. You will only have to insert the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and will be able to make use of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will enable you to see the apps’ output and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to define the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit on the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and run at the same time and you will have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to add new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and so on.
