Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can considerably speed up the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, once any information is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser games or live chat software, for instance, and numerous companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host an Internet application on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and you wish to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to your account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can insert the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to delete or to reboot each instance independently, if it’s required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated plans include Node.js, so if you’d like to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s user-friendly interface, you will have to enter the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to check the output of each of your apps or to remove/reboot each instance independently.

The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for users without any previous experience, so if you want to set up Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You will just need to include the folder path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also select a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view the output of the apps and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will enable you to start/delete/reboot any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only a click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to make use of the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is define the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one.
