Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, 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 info is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive web browser games or web-based chat portals, for example, and numerous companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Hosting

When you host a web application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account regardless of the hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to delete or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can activate it with only several clicks. In case you would like to use it for different web sites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and choosing whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with similar software. Our system will also designate a random port which will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one click.

The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can activate as many instances as you need on our super-powerful servers and each of them can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to view the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
