Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the site expands and there’re plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser games or live chat systems, for example, and many corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which website hosting package you have chosen at signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to select the number of instances that you would like to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. A few minutes later, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your shared hosting account, as well as to select the IP to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to cancel it in case you do not want it anymore. You will also gain access to the output code with only a click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the platform is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can set it up with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The activation is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and choosing whether Node.js should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such software. Our system will also assign a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular application. Hepsia has a user-friendly interface that will permit you to restart and to shut down any of your running instances, to get new ones or to see your apps’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can get Node.js with each of the VPS web hosting services that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its own section where you can set it up with several clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is really intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to activate a new Node.js instance is to include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be selected automatically too. There won’t be any restrictions on the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js at once, so you can use our VPS servers for multiple websites and enjoy a magnificent performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to start, to discontinue or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js comes with all dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has an incredibly simple and user-friendly interface, so even if you’ve never worked with the Node.js platform before, you can uncover its full potential in just a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will need to insert the location of the respective .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that they will use (shared or dedicated), whereas our system will specify a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can create and use simultaneously and you’ll have total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to set up new ones or to stop/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, etc.
