Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there are plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time browser-based video games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
When you host an Internet app on our advanced cloud platform and you want to try Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you are using. You can make this through the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to use Node.js in no more than several minutes after you add this feature to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the physical server’s shared IP or through a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You will be able to cancel or to reboot each instance separately, if necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, because it is included with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan offered by us. You can specify the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you’re expected to do after that will be to add the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to select the IP that will be used to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you have one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also assign a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’re able to see a given app’s output or to start/reboot/stop any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Hepsia hosting Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company and you can set it up without any obstacles, even if you have never worked with it beforehand, because the Hepsia Control Panel has an intuitive, point & click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-powered software apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You will need to insert the folder path to the .js file in your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your VPS’s shared one and you will be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will allocate randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with just one mouse click, you will be able to start, to discontinue or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you will be able to make the most of the platform as soon as your dedicated machine is assembled. As Hepsia is amazingly simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without experiencing any complications, even if you have never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is insert the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other sites. You can run as many instances as you want on our unbelievably powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to restart or to terminate it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
