Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live 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 intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive web browser video games or web-based chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

As Node.js is available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web application that you have, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you have selected at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you wish to have – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to stop it in case you don’t want it anymore. You will also be given access to the output code with only a single click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it is included with each package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js 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 have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also designate a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this platform once your physical server is assembled. Since Hepsia is pretty user-friendly, you’ll be able to do that without having to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is enter the path to the .js file that will use the 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 web sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our powerful machines and each instance can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of Node.js without effort.
