Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can substantially enhance the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser games or live chat software, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with every cloud hosting plan that we offer, as the platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active shared account with a couple of mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to run. One instance means that one single app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside Hepsia will also allow you to restart or to suspend an instance and to check the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the management tool that’s included with every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or shut down separately and you can see your apps’ output with just a few mouse clicks.

Our system will also choose a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you’ll be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to terminate any of your instances using fast-access buttons.
