Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or online chat software, for instance, and lots of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the amount of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can run as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the location of your .js application and to select if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number designated by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have created, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with only a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an amazingly user-friendly GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, since it is is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you want to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your package. Then, you will have to add the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you activate can be restarted or removed separately and you can check your apps’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform once your physical server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very simple to work with, you’ll be able to make that without any problem, even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is add the directory 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 Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you wish on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to delete it, to view the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
