Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, once any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser video games or online chat apps, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All Linux cloud website hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you will be able to add this leading-edge platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also enable you to set the path to your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number assigned by our cloud platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or view the output of the active instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an extremely easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it comes with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to view the output of a given app or to start/restart/terminate any of the instances that you’ve activated.

The platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you want, so you can get the most out of your websites by mixing the power of our Virtual Private Servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You’ll have to insert the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to choose if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will assign randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will give you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
