Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser games or instant messengers, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

As Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web app that you have, regardless of which cloud hosting plan you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared website hosting account, will allow you to select the number of instances that you’d like to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you will be able to define the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to choose the IP to gain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you don’t require it anymore. You’ll also get access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it comes with each semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a randomly generated port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you have added.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js is available by default with each VPS server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions with regard to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans an ideal solution for managing multiple real-time script-powered web apps and for making the most of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for people without any prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You will just need to specify the folder path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a very intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the folder path to the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP which they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will allocate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to get new ones or to delete/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and many others.
