Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, 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 lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat applications, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting package you’ve selected upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you want to get – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to enter the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to deactivate it if you do not want it any longer. You will also receive access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you’d like to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with only a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with GUI, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of any of your applications or to stop/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting services offered by our company and you can configure it without any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an easy-to-navigate, point & click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven software applications as you like, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our VPSs with the performance offered by Node.js. You’ll need to indicate the directory path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform as soon as your physical machine is assembled. Since Hepsia is rather easy to use, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any obstacles, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the directory path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can create as many instances as you want on our really powerful machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to view the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without any effort.
