Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the online users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the website expands and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or web-based chat portals, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated services support Node.js, so if you would like to host any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to select the amount of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly graphical interface, you will need to enter the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will set a random port to access your application and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to view the output of each of your apps or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.

Node.js in VPS

The platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a few clicks even if you do not have any experience with such software, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to enter the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port number will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any constraints on how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our VPS servers for numerous sites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access links in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to cancel or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.

The setup takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it rather easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or stopped independently and you will obtain access to a comprehensive output log for each application that uses Node.js.
