Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously improve the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there’re many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
All Linux website hosting packages that we are offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde platform to your account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the number of instances for this upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at once, and you can get as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port designated by our cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js app or see the running instances’ output with only a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using a quite easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it is is included with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the management tool that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to use Node.js for different web applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated plan. Then, you will need to add the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will appear in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the access path to the given application will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the server’s shared IP. Each instance that you activate can be restarted or terminated independently and you can check the output of your apps with just several clicks of the mouse.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to use the platform once your dedicated server is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is very intuitive, you will be able to do that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you have not worked with the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is include the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can manage as many instances as you need on our very powerful servers and each instance can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to discontinue it, to check the output of the application using it, etc. This can be done via the easy-to-use, point ‘n’ click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can take full advantage of the power of Node.js with no effort.
