Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances that you wish 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 specify the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if that file will be accessible through the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance separately, if it is necessary.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our plans and you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can get more instances through the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as inserting the path to your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to delete any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view your apps’ output with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this platform as soon as your physical machine is up and running. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very easy to work with, you’ll be able to do that without any difficulties, even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is include the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform 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 Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our incredibly powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done through the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js effortlessly.
