Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform 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 considerably boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time web browser video games or live chat programs, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Hosting

All Linux hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port allocated by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js app or check the active instances’ output with just several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-use interface.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js by default and you can use the event-driven platform for each application that you host on the VPS. Since we have not put any limitation as to the number of instances that you can use, you can use the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you won’t need to cope with any impediments while working with the platform. You will only have to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. In addition, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one click of the mouse, you can see your apps’ output and to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the server.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based software apps at no additional cost when you purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via a simple-to-navigate GUI, which will permit you to start/discontinue/reboot any Node.js instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with only a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you’ll have to do to set it up is enter the path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be assigned automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
