Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser games or online chat software, for example, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each hosting package that we offer, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing account with several mouse clicks. After you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single application will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new section will show up in the Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP address or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to cancel an instance and to view any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with only several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you’d like to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers for your script-based apps and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, as the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll get stunning results even if you host lots of Node.js instances at once. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s graphical user interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has designated a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or deleted separately and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
