Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site expands and there are plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser games or instant messaging programs, for example, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting that we are offering support Node.js and you are able to add this cutting-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js application and to decide whether you will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port set by our cloud hosting system. Furthermore, you can stop or restart any instance that you have added, change the location of the .js application or view the active instances’ output with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel via a pretty easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-based web app running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can enable it with just several clicks. If you’d like to use it for multiple Internet sites, you can get more instances from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The configuration is as simple as indicating the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the server’s shared ones, so you can make use of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with such software. Our system will also select a random port number that will be used to access the .js file for the specific application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use GUI that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your active instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase any of our dedicated servers for your script-powered software applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no extra charge, as this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built Control Panel tool. As our servers are extremely powerful, you will get superb performance even if you host a lot of Node.js instances simultaneously. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and the Hepsia Control Panel’s user interface will make it incredibly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has set a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be restarted or discontinued separately and you’ll be given access to an exhaustive output log for each of the apps that use Node.js.
