Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there are plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser video games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and a lot of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
Since Node.js is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your account and to use it for any web app that you have, irrespective of which cloud hosting package you’ve picked at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all web hosting accounts, will permit you to choose the number of instances that you want to add – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes afterwards, you can specify the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your web hosting account, as well as to select the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to shut it down if you do not require it any longer. You’ll also acquire access to the output code with only a click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting services include Node.js, so in case you wish to run any real-time application on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that the system can offer you with only several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you wish to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you will need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will assign a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also allow you to see the output of each of your apps or to stop/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
Node.js is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and involves no restrictions regarding the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our Virtual Private Server packages an optimal choice for building multiple real-time web-based applications and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for people with no previous experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any application, it won’t take more than a couple of clicks of the mouse to do it. You will just need to add the folder path to the specific .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you’ll be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the applications’ output and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting services for your script-powered apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional fee, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built tool. Since our servers are astonishingly powerful, you’ll get great performance even if you run numerous Node.js instances at once. The setup takes several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s interface will make it very easy for you to activate a new instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Specifying the path to the .js file and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and as soon as our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be rebooted or terminated separately and you will be granted with access to an exhaustive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
