Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there’re plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser games or online chat systems, for example, and lots of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which shared hosting package you have picked upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you will be able to define the path to the application, i.e. the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to deactivate it in case you no longer want it. You’ll also be given access to the output code with just a single click of the mouse.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, because it is available with all our plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package. After that, you’ll have to insert the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you run can be restarted or removed separately and you can view the output of your applications with only several mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS that we’re offering and you can configure it without the need to deal with any problem, even if you have never used it before, because the Hepsia Control Panel has a simple-to-navigate, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet apps as you need, so you can get the most out of your web sites by mixing the power of our VPS servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You will need to add the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to see the output of each app that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is included with all dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. As Hepsia is quite easy to use, you’ll be able to do that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our incredibly powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to delete it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
