Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time browser-based video games or live chat systems, for example, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of Node.js with each shared web hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you like. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should go through the physical server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to stop an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud platform, as it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can choose a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is offered as standard with each VPS server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations concerning the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an excellent solution for hosting numerous real-time script-based apps and for getting the most out of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you’d like to activate Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to make this. You will simply need to insert the location of the given .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our platform will also select a specific port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the output of the applications and to reboot or to remove any of your instances using quick-access buttons.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an intuitive graphical interface, which will permit you to start/terminate/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, as all you will need to do to set it up is add the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one.
