Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat systems, for example, and a lot of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting plan you’ve selected during the subscription process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to choose the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A few minutes afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your hosting account, as well as to select the IP to access that file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you’ll be able to reboot an instance or to shut it down if you do not require it any longer. You’ll also be granted access to the output code with just a click.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can get it with only a few clicks.

The setup is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also allocate a random port number which will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your active instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.

You’ll just have to specify the path to the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also assign a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and will be able to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see the applications’ output and to restart or to discontinue any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
