Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a server and the online users and can substantially enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser games or live chat programs, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting offered by our company come with Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also allow you to choose the precise path to your .js application and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port allocated by our cloud system. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have added, modify the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite intuitive GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform has, as it is is included with all our plans and you are able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or deactivated separately and you can see your apps’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Node.js in VPS Servers

The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you’ve got no experience with such a software platform, since Hepsia is really intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any constraints as to how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for numerous sites and enjoy a terrific performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to start, to stop or to restart any Node.js instance separately and to see their output.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an intuitive GUI, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the Node.js platform, since all you will have to do to activate it is add the directory path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one.
