Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s delivered 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 processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the website grows bigger and there are lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser games or online chat platforms, for instance, and many companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared website hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared web hosting account with several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you want to run. One instance means that one application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new section will show up in the Control Panel shortly afterwards and to begin using Node.js, you’ll have to define the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select if the connection should proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to suspend an instance and to view the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting packages include Node.js, so in case you’d like to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you’d like to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate interface, you will need to enter the location of the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your apps or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel include Node.js as standard and you can take advantage of this platform for any script-driven web application that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t set a limitation on the amount of Node.js instances that you can get, you can make the most of the power of our servers and combine it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use, point ‘n’ click GUI, so even if you’re not technically proficient, you won’t encounter any obstacles while using the Node.js platform. You will just need to insert the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP. In addition, our system will also set a port number to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to check your applications’ output and to shut down or to reboot any instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and easy-to-navigate graphical interface, so even if you haven’t worked with the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unveil its true potential in only a couple of simple steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to insert the directory path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will allocate a random port number that will be used to access the files in question. There is no restriction as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll exert full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to order new ones or to discontinue/restart existing ones, to view the output log for each app, and many others.
