Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there’re lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All shared website hosting offered by us include Node.js and you can add this advanced platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you like. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js application and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number allocated by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the location of the .js application or check the running instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a rather user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface, you will need to specify the location of 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 specify a randomly generated port to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to check the output of any of your apps or to shut down/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your server is set up. As Hepsia is very simple to work with, you will be able to make that without experiencing any difficulty, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is insert the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our amazingly powerful machines and each instance can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js effortlessly.
