Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser video games or instant messaging programs, for example, and many companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting plans offered by us include Node.js and you’re able to add this innovative platform to your shared account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to pick the precise location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number designated by our cloud platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a very easy-to-use interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans include Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate GUI, you will have to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a random port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your applications or to cancel/reboot each instance separately.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is included as standard with each and every VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no limitations as to the number of websites that can use it at any particular time. This makes our VPS packages an excellent option for managing different real-time script-based apps and for taking full advantage of them. Hepsia is user-friendly enough even for people without any previous experience, so if you wish to set up Node.js for any app, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to make this. You will only need to add the folder path to the .js file in question and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to deactivate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform once your physical machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is really user-friendly, you will be able to do that without having to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform 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 activate as many instances as you need on our super-powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
