Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or online chat apps, for instance, and lots of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you want to add to the account – one instance means that one app will be 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 web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, in case it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with just several clicks. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as easy as adding the location of your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to view the output of your applications with just a click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS servers that we’re offering and you can configure it without having to cope with any difficulty, even if you’ve never used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-use, point-and-click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you like, so you can get the most out of your sites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that Node.js offers. You have to enter the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will set randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated server is set up. Since Hepsia is really easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any difficulty, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our astonishingly powerful machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to terminate it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js without effort.
