Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or instant messengers, for instance, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js with every cloud web hosting package that we offer, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with a couple of mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you want to order. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to start using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, because it’s comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to employ Node.js for different web applications, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your plan. After that, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or deactivated separately and you can view the output of your apps with only several mouse clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-powered software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are rather powerful, you will enjoy stunning performance even if you run multiple Node.js instances at the same time. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Inserting the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and as soon as our system has selected a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or removed separately and you’ll get access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
