Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat apps, for example, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with every shared hosting package that we are offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you would like to activate. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to reboot or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes with all our packages and you can add it with only several clicks. In case you want to use it for different web sites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as easy as inserting the path to your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also specify a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an intuitive GUI that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to see the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js in VPS Web Hosting

You can use Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is pretty intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any limit as to the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance independently and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers hosting on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a couple of easy steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the directory path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port number that will be used to access these files. There is no constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can create and run simultaneously and you will exert total command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etcetera.
