Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser video games or online chat platforms, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Shared Hosting

If you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you are using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to select the number of instances that you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also select a port for the connection. You’ll be able to cancel or to restart each instance independently, if needed.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud platform, as it’s included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you are expected to do after that will be to enter the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IPs. Our system will also designate a random port. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/cancel any of the instances that you’ve activated.

All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to indicate the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous websites and enjoy a marvelous overall performance. Fast-access controls in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any instance independently and to check their output.
