Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers little bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a registration form, the moment any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change in case the Internet site expands and there’re a lot of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser games or live chat apps, for instance, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
All Linux shared web hosting services that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this leading-edge platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to set the exact location of your .js application and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port set by our cloud hosting platform. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the location of the .js app or view the running instances’ output with only a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a very user-friendly interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan offered by our company. You can add the number of instances, or apps which can use Node.js, via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can control your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to specify the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP that will be used in order to access this file. You can pick a dedicated IP address if you’ve got one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view the output of a given app or to start/reboot/terminate any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS hosting services that we are offering and you can configure it without any difficulty, even if you’ve never worked with it beforehand, as Hepsia offers an easy-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything without any effort. The platform can be used for as many script-driven web apps as you want, so you can make the most of your sites by combining the power of our virtual machines with the performance provided by the Node.js platform. You need to include the directory path to the .js file in your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual server’s shared one and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port that our system will assign randomly when you set up a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you complete control over all Node.js instances and, with just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to delete or to reboot them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to use any of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-based software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to make use of Node.js at no extra cost, as the platform is built into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our servers are pretty powerful, you will enjoy superb performance even if you make use of lots of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it extremely easy for you to set up a new instance even if you have little or no experience. Adding the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll need to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you have activated can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you will receive access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
