Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered 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, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser video games or live chats, for example, and many companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to reboot each instance independently, if it is required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it comes with each package that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see a given application’s output or to start/reboot/remove any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints concerning the number of websites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an excellent choice for managing different real-time script-driven web applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You will just need to add the folder path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a specific port that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to delete any of your instances using fast-access buttons.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no extra fee if you buy one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an easy-to-use GUI, which will permit you to start/discontinue/restart any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you’ll have to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be selected automatically as well and you’ll notice the advantages of running Node.js straight away. By mixing Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
