Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser video games or online chat portals, for example, and numerous companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced event-driven platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set the path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud hosting platform. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js application or view the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a rather simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel include Node.js by default and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each web app that you host on the VPS. Since we have not put a limit as to the number of Node.js instances that you can set up, you can use the power of our VPS servers and combine it with the full potential of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s time and effort saving, point-and-click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t technically experienced, you won’t have to cope with any obstacles while using the platform. You’ll just need to include the path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also choose a port number to access this file and you’ll be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to check your apps’ output and to stop or to restart any Node.js instance running on the Virtual Private Server.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered applications at no extra cost if you get any of our dedicated web hosting and select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-use graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to view the output of the application that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very experienced, you’ll be able to use the Node.js platform, since all you’ll need to do to set it up is include the path to the .js file and choose the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port will be selected automatically as well and you’ll see the advantages of running Node.js straight away. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
