Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there’re a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time browser games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a web application on our innovative cloud platform and you would like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your hosting account regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this feature to the account. You will be able to select the number of instances that you wish to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can enter the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether that file will be reachable via the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also allocate a port number for the connection. You’ll be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, if necessary.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include Node.js, so in case you would like to run any real-time app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to make use of the power that Node.js can give you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you would like to use Node.js for multiple sites, you’ll be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Through Hepsia’s simple-to-use interface, you will need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can set it up with a couple of clicks of the mouse even if you don’t have any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is quite intuitive and easy to navigate. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to add the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be designated automatically as well. There won’t be any restrictions as to the number of the Internet sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our Virtual Private Servers for lots of sites and enjoy an incredible performance. Quick-access controls in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to discontinue or to restart any instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages on which our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers an incredibly simple and easy-to-use GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can unveil its true potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to enter the folder path to the specific .js files that will use Node.js and to pick the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a random port that will be used to access the files in question. There’s no limitation as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you will have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to deactivate/reboot existing ones, to view the output log for each application, etcetera.
