Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that need real-time 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 designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there are numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based games or instant messaging software, for example, and many corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
When you host an Internet application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the web hosting package that you use. 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 couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to your account. You’ll be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means that one app will be using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and select if the file in question will be accessible via the shared IP of the server or through a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port number for the connection. You will be able to shut down or to restart each instance separately, if it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting support Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time app on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can make full use of the power that Node.js can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so in case you want to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Using the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-use GUI, you’ll need to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. 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. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of any of your applications or to discontinue/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js is available by default with each virtual private server that is ordered with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and involves no constraints when it comes to the number of websites that can use it at any given time. This makes our Virtual Private Server plans an ideal option for setting up numerous real-time script-driven applications and for taking full advantage of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for users with no prior experience, so if you wish to activate Node.js for any app, it will not take more than several clicks to do it. You’ll only need to add the location of the given .js file and to select whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated one. Our system will also select a certain port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time apps. Hepsia will enable you to check the output of the applications and to reboot or to shut down any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting on which our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter has a rather intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you’ve never used Node.js before, you’ll be able to uncover its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll need to include the location of the particular .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP which they will use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will select a randomly generated port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no constraint on the total number of Node.js instances that you can activate and use at the same time and you’ll exert complete control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each application, and so on.
