Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging apps, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

You can use Node.js with each shared hosting package offered by our company, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick the number of instances that you want to get. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection will pass through the shared IP of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to check the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web-based application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it’s available with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to enter the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also set a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you will be able to see the output of a given application or to start/restart/stop any of the instances that you have activated.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to use any of our dedicated service for your script-driven web apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since the platform is available in our custom-developed tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you will get great performance even if you manage a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it rather easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no prior experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or deleted independently and you’ll have access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
