Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded 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 many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and many companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Web Hosting

All Linux web hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you can add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you want. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the location of your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via a pretty easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform comes bundled with all our plans and you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. If you would like to use it for different websites, you can order more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as easy as choosing the path to your .js file and selecting whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with such software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has an easy to work with graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your running instances, to get new ones or to see your applications’ output with just a click.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to make use of any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-driven software apps and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as this event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you make use of many Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it quite easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has selected a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or canceled independently and you will get access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
