Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based games or instant messaging clients, for example, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you use. This can be done through the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to disable or to restart each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you want to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to select the amount of active instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s user-friendly interface, you will need to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to check the output of any of your applications or to delete/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting services offered by us and you can configure it without any complications, even if you have never used it before, since the Hepsia Control Panel offers an intuitive, point ‘n’ click interface, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many web apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your sites by combining the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform offers. You will need to define the directory path to the .js file within your account and to choose whether it will use a dedicated IP address or your virtual server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port that our system will select randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will grant you total control over all instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to terminate or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the Node.js platform.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an amazingly simple and user-friendly graphical interface, so even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its full potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to indicate the directory path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can activate and use simultaneously and you will exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, and many others.
