Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can substantially speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, once any info 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 on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there’re many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser video games or web-based chat portals, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

When you host an Internet app on our leading-edge cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you are using. This can be done via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to choose the number of instances that you’d like to add to the account – one instance means that one application will be 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 hosting account and choose whether that file will be accessible through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance independently, if required.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform has, as it is is included with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can choose the amount of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll need to indicate the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the particular application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you add can be rebooted or stopped independently and you can view your applications’ output with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Our system will also allocate a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to view the output of the apps and to restart or to deactivate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
