Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser video games or instant messaging software, for instance, and plenty of companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to utilize it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you want to have – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes later, you will be able to enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to receive access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to discontinue it if you no longer require it. You will also obtain access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can order it with just a couple of clicks. If you’d like to use it for different web sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as including the location of your .js file and choosing if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to remove any of your active instances, to create new ones or to check your apps’ output with just one click.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can activate Node.js with any of the VPS hosting that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to specify the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limit as to how many websites can use Node.js at once, so you can use our virtual servers for lots of websites and enjoy a wonderful performance. Quick-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to start, to deactivate or to reboot any instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no extra cost in case you obtain any of our dedicated web hosting and choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a user-friendly interface, which will allow you to start/stop/restart any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to use the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is insert the folder path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port will be assigned automatically as well and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
