Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there are numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat platforms, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

When you host a web app on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account regardless of the shared hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can indicate the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to stop or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans support Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different Internet sites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s user-friendly graphical interface, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a randomly generated port number to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to discontinue/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans for your script-driven applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, since this platform is included in our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are truly powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup requires several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Entering the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has specified a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or terminated separately and you will have access to an in-depth output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
