Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the website expands and there are many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser-based video games or live chat portals, for instance, and plenty of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it’s available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or apps 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’ll need do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/deactivate any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in VPS

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed VPS services that we’re offering and you can configure it without needing to deal with any difficulty, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without efforts. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-based web apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You will have to insert the path to the .js file in your account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP or your server’s shared IP and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will set randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total 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 see the output of each application that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-driven web applications at no additional charge if you order one of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section through an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will permit you to start/remove/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you’ll need to do to set it up is include the location of the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A randomly generated port will be assigned automatically too and you’ll notice the upsides of running Node.js straight away. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
