Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there are a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging clients, for example, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud web hosting package you have selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes after that, you’ll be able to insert the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your account, as well as to pick the IP to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to delete it if you do not want it anymore. You’ll also obtain access to the output code with only a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our avant-garde cloud platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different sites, you’ll be able to choose the amount of running instances, one instance being one app. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s intuitive interface, you’ll need to enter the location of the .js file for each instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a randomly generated 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 permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can activate Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with several mouse clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is truly intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to specify the folder path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP address. A randomly generated access port will be selected automatically as well. There won’t be any limitations on the number of the websites that can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to delete or to reboot any Node.js instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to use one of our Linux dedicated hosting services for your script-based software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra charge, as this platform is integrated into our in-house built tool. Since our dedicated servers are quite powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent results even if you manage plenty of Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and Hepsia’s GUI will make it really easy for you to create a new instance even if you have little or no prior experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do on your end and once our system has chosen a port number to access that file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you will have access to a detailed output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
