Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or live chat software, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each shared website hosting package offered by our company, as the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you want to get. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to start using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose if the connection should pass through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also permit you to restart or to remove an instance and to see any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. In case you would like to use it for different websites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as inserting the folder path to your .js file and choosing if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also designate a random port number that will be used to access the .js file associated with the specific app. Hepsia has an easy to work with GUI that will permit you to reboot and to discontinue any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can take advantage of Node.js with each of the VPS servers offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you don’t have any experience with such a software platform, as Hepsia is exceptionally intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any limit on how many sites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for a lot of sites and enjoy a terrific overall performance. Quick-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to start, to remove or to restart any instance independently and to see their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-based web applications at no additional cost if you order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia Control Panel through an intuitive graphical interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/reboot any Node.js instance or to check the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you aren’t very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you will have to do to activate it is include the location of the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be assigned automatically as well and you will see the benefits of using Node.js instantly. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you can take advantage of the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
