Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the website hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You can select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you’ll be able to use the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port. With the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you can see the output of a given application or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your server is assembled. As Hepsia is rather intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our exceptionally powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be controlled separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
