Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably improve the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there’re numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser-based games or live chat clients, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting that we’re offering include Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can get as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to set the exact path to your .js application and to choose whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number allocated by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, edit the path to the .js application or see the output of the active instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly simple-to-navigate interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Node.js, so in case you would like to host any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the power that the system can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to choose the number of running instances, one instance being one app. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use interface, you will need to specify the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will designate a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of any of your apps or to discontinue/reboot each instance independently.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to take advantage of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is up and running. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is quite simple to use, you will be able to make that without any problems, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you need on our super-powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to cancel it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. You can do this through the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of Node.js without efforts.
