Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously improve the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat apps, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each shared hosting package that we offer, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active hosting account with several mouse clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to decide whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to reboot or to delete an instance and to view any given app’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan that we are offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also set a random port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you can check a given application’s output or to start/restart/cancel any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you’ll be able to unveil its full potential in only a few simple steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the location of the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will have full control over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to create new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and so on.
