Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based games or online chats, for example, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting offered by us include Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number given by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a really easy-to-use GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it comes with each and every package that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to add the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our system will also set a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see the output of a given app or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you’ve added.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is available with all dedicated servers on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used Node.js before, you’ll be able to take advantage of its true potential in only a few simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will have to insert the folder path to the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any restriction on the total number of instances that you can set up and use at the same time and you will exert full command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to cancel/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, etc.
