Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can substantially speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging applications, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it to your shared hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which shared hosting plan you’ve chosen upon registration. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all 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 afterwards, you can indicate the path to the application, in other words the location of the .js file in your account, as well as to pick the IP address 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 Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t need it any longer. You will also obtain access to the output code with just a mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. If you wish to use it for several Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The configuration is as simple as adding the location of your .js file and selecting if the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the given app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will allow you to restart and to deactivate any of your running instances, to add new ones or to see your apps’ output with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
You can make use of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. The platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a few mouse clicks even if you do not have any experience with a similar software platform, since Hepsia is rather intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to include the folder 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 will be assigned automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on how many websites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for multiple websites and enjoy a fantastic overall performance. Fast-access buttons in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to deactivate or to restart any instance separately and to view their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven web applications and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no extra cost, since the platform is incorporated into our in-house developed tool. Since our servers are incredibly powerful, you’ll get excellent results even if you run lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it exceptionally easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Adding the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has selected a port to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have created can be rebooted or deleted independently and you’ll be given access to an elaborate output log for each of the applications that use Node.js.
