Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, 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 info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the site expands and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or live chat portals, for instance, and plenty of corporations, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, irrespective of which shared web hosting plan you’ve chosen during the registration process. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can specify the path to the app, in other words the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to select the IP to acquire access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to cancel it in case you no longer require it. You will also be provided with access to the output code with only a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so if you wish to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can offer you with only several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you will have to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will designate a random port number to access your application and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your applications or to terminate/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS web hosting services that we’re offering and you can set it up without any problems, even if you’ve never used it before, as Hepsia offers an easy to work with, point ‘n’ click GUI, which will permit you to do anything without efforts. The platform can be used for as many script-driven applications as you wish, so you can make the most of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance that the Node.js platform provides. You need to indicate the path to the .js file within your account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your server’s shared one and you will be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all instances and, with just a click, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated hosting services for your script-powered applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra fee, since the event-driven platform is built into our custom Control Panel tool. Since our servers are rather powerful, you’ll get stunning performance even if you host lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to set up a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and once our system has allocated a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or terminated separately and you will receive access to an in-depth output log for each app that uses the Node.js platform.
