Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes 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 whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time browser video games or live chat portals, for instance, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can run as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to specify the exact location of your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number set by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel via an incredibly easy-to-use graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with only a few clicks. In case you’d like to use it for different websites, you can enable more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as indicating the folder path to your .js file and selecting whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can make the most of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will allow you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to view the output of your apps with just one click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting services that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can use the platform for any script-based application that you host on the Virtual Private Server. As we haven’t set a restriction as to the number of instances that you can activate, you can make the most of the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-navigate, point & click interface, so even if you aren’t technically proficient, you will not have to deal with any impediments while using the platform. You’ll just need to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access this file and you will be able to find it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to view your apps’ output and to shut down or to reboot any instance running on the VPS server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to buy one of our dedicated web hosting for your script-driven software applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, since the event-driven platform is integrated into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. Since our servers are truly powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you host numerous Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and as soon as our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or shut down separately and you’ll have access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
