Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the second any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat portals, for example, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our advanced cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared website hosting package that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can choose how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also specify a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in VPS

You can make use of Node.js with each of the VPS packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a few clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with such software, as Hepsia is very intuitive and easy to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to specify the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for plenty of websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to make use of one of our dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is incorporated into our custom-developed Control Panel tool. Since our dedicated servers are unbelievably powerful, you will get stunning results even if you manage lots of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes several clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it pretty easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Inserting the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and as soon as our system has allocated a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or canceled separately and you will be granted with access to a detailed output log for each application that uses Node.js.
