Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there are lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser-based video games or instant messengers, for example, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

Since Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web application that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve picked during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to activate – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared account, as well as to select the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to shut it down in case you don’t require it any longer. You will also get access to the output code with just a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive graphical interface, you will need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS services that we offer and you can set it up without having to cope with any problem, even if you have not worked with it before, since Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click interface, which will permit you to do anything with ease. The Node.js platform can be used for as many Internet applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your web sites by combining the power of our VPSs with the performance provided by Node.js. You’ll have to add the directory path to the .js file in your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will allocate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of this platform as soon as your dedicated server is assembled. Since Hepsia is very user-friendly, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many instances as you like on our unbelievably powerful machines and each of them can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take advantage of the power of Node.js with ease.
