Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site expands and there are many persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging applications, for example, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Web Hosting
As Node.js is present on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account and to use it for any web-based app that you’ve got, irrespective of which web hosting package you have selected during the registration process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with all accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you’d like to run – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you can enter the path to the application, i.e. where the .js file will be located in your shared hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to gain access to the file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. In the new Node.js menu that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel, you can reboot an instance or to discontinue it in case you don’t want it any longer. You’ll also receive access to the output code with just one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Node.js, so in case you want to run any real-time application on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can give you with just several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different sites, you will be able to pick the amount of available instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use graphical interface, you’ll have to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared IP. Our platform will allocate a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to view the output of any of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance separately.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-navigate GUI, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can unveil its true potential in just a couple of easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you’ll have to include the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP address which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a random port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limitation as to the total amount of Node.js instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll exert total control over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to set up new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and so on.
