Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or online chat portals, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, since it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that is included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for different web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you will have to specify the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you order can be restarted or shut down separately and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the VPS web hosting plans offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you haven’t got any experience with similar software, since Hepsia is extremely intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limits as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for many sites and enjoy a magnificent overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to view their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based applications at no additional fee if you acquire any of our dedicated web hosting plans and choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through a simple-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/remove/reboot any instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with only one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to make use of the platform, since all you need to do to activate it is add the path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be set automatically too and you will notice the advantages of running Node.js instantaneously. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
