Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time browser video games or online chat applications, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

If you host a web application on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your account irrespective of the website hosting package that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you wish to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can add the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. Our system will also specify a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart 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 software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with just several mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for multiple websites, you can activate more instances via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and selecting whether the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such software. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to terminate any of your existing instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your apps with just a click.

You will need to specify the folder path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you create a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you full control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to deactivate or to reboot them, as well as to view the output of each application that uses the platform.
