Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable 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 site expands and there are a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time browser games or live chat software, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use Node.js with each and every shared web hosting plan offered by our company, as the 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 sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you’d like to get. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you will have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or through a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to restart or to cancel an instance and to see the output of any given application.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it is available with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it to your account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server. If you would like to use Node.js for different Internet apps, you can choose the amount of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your package. After that, you’ll have to insert 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 add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP – if you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each and every instance that you run can be restarted or terminated independently and you can check the output of your applications with just a few clicks of the mouse.
