Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are lots of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or online chat apps, for example, and numerous corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All website hosting plans that we are offering support Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will make use of Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the exact path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port specified by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the path to the .js application or check the output of the active instances with only several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a pretty easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it is comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the account administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can choose the number of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. Then, you will need to enter the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deleted separately and you can view the output of your applications with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers

The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through a user-friendly graphical interface, which will permit you to start/stop/restart any instance or to check the output of the app which uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the platform, as all you will need to do to activate it is include the path to the .js file and pick the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js momentarily. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make use of the full capacity of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
