Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably improve the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change in case the website expands and there’re numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time web browser-based video games or live chats, for example, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you use. You can make this via the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you would like to add to the account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can write the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be reachable via the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated one. Our system will also set a port for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to restart each instance independently, in case it is required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can order it with only several clicks. In case you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can add more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as choosing the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you don’t have any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also set a randomly generated port which will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will allow you to reboot and to delete any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take advantage of the platform for each script-driven software app that you run on the VPS. Since we have not imposed any limitation on the number of Node.js instances that you can get, you can take full advantage of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically experienced, you won’t have any impediments while using the platform. You’ll just have to add the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. What’s more, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the corresponding Control Panel section. With just one mouse click, you will be able to see the output of your apps and to terminate or to restart any instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered software apps at no extra cost in case you acquire any of our dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-work-with GUI, which will enable you to start/stop/restart any Node.js instance or to view the output of the app that uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, as all you have to do to activate it is define the directory path to the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A random port number will be set automatically too and you will notice the advantages of using Node.js straight away. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best possible performance.
