Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, the second any information is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered 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 processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there’re a lot of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser video games or instant messengers, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you’ve chosen upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you wish to add – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you can specify the path to the app, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared website hosting account, as well as to choose the IP address to acquire access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to cancel it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also be granted access to the output code with just a single mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform offers, because it is comes with all our packages and you are able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you’ll have to indicate the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose if the path to the specific application will go through a dedicated IP address – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of the event-driven platform for any software app that you run on the VPS. As we have not imposed any restriction on the number of instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of Node.js. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not need to cope with any impediments while using the Node.js platform. You will only need to insert the folder path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also choose a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With only one click, you’ll be able to see your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to uncover its true potential in just a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to indicate the path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any constraint as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run simultaneously and you’ll exert complete control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to order new ones or to deactivate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and so on.
