Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser video games or live chat systems, for example, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

You can make use of Node.js with each and every cloud website hosting package that we are offering, as the event-driven platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can pick how many instances you want to order. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will go 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 remove an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to use it for several web sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as adding the path to your .js file and choosing if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IPs, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate GUI that will permit you to restart and to deactivate any of your existing instances, to add new ones or to view your apps’ output with just one click.
