Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there are numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser-based games or online chat software, for instance, and many companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every website hosting plan that we’re offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active account with several mouse clicks. After you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection will go through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to see any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can get it with just a couple of clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple websites, you can order more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate interface that will permit you to reboot and to shut down any of your active instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

Node.js in Dedicated Hosting

Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you have never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can take advantage of its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to insert the location of the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will choose a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There is no limit on the total amount of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, etcetera.
