Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser games or instant messaging programs, for example, and lots of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

All Linux shared packages that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, change the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using an extremely intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is available with all our packages and you can order it with only a couple of clicks. If you would like to use it for several Internet sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as including the folder path to your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will allow you to restart and to cancel any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this event-driven platform once your server is set up. As Hepsia is extremely simple to work with, you will be able to do that without coming across any predicaments, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is insert the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our exceptionally powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the user-friendly, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
