Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, once any information is entered in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the website expands and there’re lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or live chat programs, for example, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with each and every cloud hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing shared account with a couple of clicks of the mouse. After you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will find Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can choose the number of instances that you’d like to order. One instance means that one app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your web hosting account as you wish. A new section will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will have to include the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will pass through the shared IP of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to see the output of any given app.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud website hosting platform, since it’s available with each semi-dedicated plan that we are offering. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you will have to do after that will be to insert the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also choose a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/remove any of the instances that you have activated.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints regarding the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our VPS plans a perfect option for hosting multiple real-time script-based applications and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for persons without any prior experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any application, it will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse to do it. You’ll simply have to indicate the path to the .js file in question and to choose if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a particular port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will allow you to view the output of the apps and to reboot or to terminate any of your instances using quick-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional cost, as this platform is included in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are quite powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you run multiple Node.js instances at once. The setup requires a few clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the path to the .js file and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do on your end and once our system has assigned a port to access this file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or stopped independently and you will be provided with access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses the Node.js platform.
