Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a web server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s sent 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 processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser-based games or web-based chat platforms, for instance, and many companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Website Hosting

All Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this leading-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js application or check the active instances’ output with only a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally simple-to-use GUI.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such software, since Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP address. A random access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual servers for many sites and enjoy a terrific performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-based web applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, since this platform is available in our custom-developed tool. As our servers are very powerful, you will enjoy stunning performance even if you manage lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has set a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be restarted or deleted independently and you’ll receive access to an exhaustive output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
