Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging systems, for example, and lots of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host a web app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you would like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you’re using. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You will be able to select how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also designate a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to restart each instance independently, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, since it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given app’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS Servers

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting plans offered by our company and you can configure it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you haven’t used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many web applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You will need to define the folder path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you full control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven apps at no extra fee in case you purchase any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-work-with interface, which will allow you to start/remove/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you need to do to activate it is include the folder path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can use the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best possible performance.
