Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are many people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or live chats, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with every cloud web hosting plan offered by us, since the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with a few clicks. After you log into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to deactivate an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also specify a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you’ve activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS servers that we are offering and you can configure it without any complications, even if you have not used it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click interface, which will permit you to do anything without any efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you need, so you can make the most of your websites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by Node.js. You have to define the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather intuitive and user-friendly interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its true potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to enter the path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can create and use at the same time and you’ll exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and so on.
