Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there are a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser video games or instant messengers, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All website hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you are able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the exact path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port assigned by our cloud hosting platform. What’s more, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve added, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the running instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-use graphical interface.

If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web-based apps, you can choose the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your package.

This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the access path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address.

As the Hepsia Control Panel is rather simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any problem, even if you have never used Node.js before, since everything that you’ll have to do on your end is add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js 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 websites. You can manage as many Node.js instances as you like on our astonishingly powerful machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to cancel it, to check the output of the app that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js with no effort.
