Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, once any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site expands and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or online chat portals, for instance, and numerous companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All Linux cloud website hosting plans that we’re offering come with Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port given by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, change the path to the .js application or check the running instances’ output with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an exceptionally easy-to-navigate GUI.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate interface, you will have to specify the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to check the output of each of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you will be able to unveil its true potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you’ve uploaded the app’s content, you’ll need to specify the path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that they’ll use (shared or dedicated), while our system will select a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint as to the total amount of instances that you can enable and use at the same time and you’ll exert total control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to discontinue/reboot existing ones, to see the output log for each application, and so on.
