Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably improve the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for example, and lots of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our innovative cloud platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You can select how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to turn off or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we offer. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to specify the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random 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/stop any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can make use of Node.js with any of the VPS servers that we’re 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 clicks even if you don’t have any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be allocated automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints as to the number of the websites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for a lot of websites and enjoy an astonishing performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-driven software apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, since the event-driven platform is included in our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it incredibly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Adding the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you will be given access to an elaborate output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
