Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser games or instant messengers, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

As Node.js is present on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which shared website hosting package you’ve picked during the subscription process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you will be able to insert the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to pick the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down in case you do not need it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a single mouse click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it is included with each semi-dedicated plan offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to insert the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can view the output of a given application or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

All Linux VPS that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of the platform for each Internet app that you run on the VPS. Since we haven’t set a limitation as to the amount of Node.js instances that you can activate, you can use the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you’re not tech-savvy, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will simply need to add the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port number to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to check the output of your applications and to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the event-driven platform as soon as your physical machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to use, you will be able to make that without encountering any predicaments, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, since everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you wish on our astonishingly powerful dedicated machines and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
