Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser-based games or instant messengers, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each cloud web hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing hosting account with several clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you want to add. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to check any given application’s output.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package through us, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, due to the fact that it’s included with each semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can indicate the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a randomly generated port number. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to view the output of a given application or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.
