Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or online chat apps, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting that we are offering support Node.js and you can add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to select the exact location of your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number selected by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js app or see the running instances’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a truly user-friendly GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any Internet app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, as it is available with each plan that we’re offering. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated account. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to pick the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can select a dedicated IP if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also specify a randomly generated port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you’ll be able to check the output of a given app or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to use this event-driven platform once your server is assembled. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is rather intuitive, you’ll be able to do that without experiencing any complications, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many instances as you want on our extremely powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the simple-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of Node.js without efforts.
