Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there are numerous users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser games or live chat systems, for example, and many corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based application that you’ve got, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve picked during the order process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you’ll be able to specify the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down in case you do not need it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with only a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can activate it with only several clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can activate more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also designate a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific application. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to add new ones or to check your applications’ output with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Servers

All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any script-driven application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. Since we haven’t set a restriction on how many instances you can add, you can take advantage of the power of our virtual servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point & click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you will not need to deal with any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will simply need to enter the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also choose a port number to access the file and you will be able to find it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you can view your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any instance hosted on the VPS.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via a simple-to-use GUI, which will enable you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is enter the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically too and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js instantly.
