Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed 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 for booking sites, real-time web browser games or web-based chat systems, for example, and numerous companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting plans offered by our company include Node.js and you are able to add this avant-garde platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the exact location of your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port chosen by our cloud hosting system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the path to the .js app or see the output of the active instances with just several clicks from your hosting Control Panel using a quite simple-to-navigate graphical interface.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js is offered with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you will be able to take advantage of its full potential in just a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you will have to include the path to the given .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will exert complete command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to review the output log for each application, and many others.
