Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based games or live chat programs, for example, and lots of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with every shared website hosting plan that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose how many instances you would like to run. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to indicate the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose whether the connection will pass through the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to shut down an instance and to view any given app’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time app on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple websites, you’ll be able to choose the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-navigate graphical interface, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will select a randomly generated port number to access your application and you will find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-powered web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, as the event-driven platform is incorporated into our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our servers are amazingly powerful, you will enjoy superb performance even if you run plenty of Node.js instances at once. The configuration requires several clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s graphical user interface will make it really easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP will be everything that you will need to do yourself and as soon as our system has designated a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be restarted or terminated independently and you’ll have access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
