Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, once any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser-based games or live chat platforms, for example, and numerous companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared hosting packages that we offer include Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also enable you to select the location of your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, modify the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it is available with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to enter 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 that file. You can choose a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can check a given application’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you have created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js is available with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting packages offered by us and you can configure it without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have not worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will allow you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you like, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will have to enter the location of the .js file within your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual machine’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign 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 one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a couple of simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to add the directory path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to select the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction on the total amount of instances that you can activate and run simultaneously and you will have complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to activate new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, etc.
