Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser games or live chats, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every web hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform comes with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can add it with just several clicks. In case you want to use it for multiple sites, you can add more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as simple as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared ones, so you can use Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular application. Hepsia has an intuitive interface that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view your applications’ output with just one click.

All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A randomly generated access port number will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of websites and enjoy a fabulous overall performance.

Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll get superb performance even if you make use of a lot of Node.js instances at the same time. The setup requires several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it incredibly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has designated a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued independently and you will have access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
