Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there’re a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging apps, for example, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting offered by us include Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set the exact path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port selected by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, change the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can set it up with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. In case you’d like to use it for several web sites, you can order more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with interface that will allow you to restart and to terminate any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to see the output of your apps with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to use any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as this platform is included in our in-house built tool. As our dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, you will enjoy excellent performance even if you host a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires a couple of clicks and Hepsia’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has assigned a port to access that file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be restarted or removed separately and you will get access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
