Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser games or online chat platforms, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our advanced cloud website hosting platform and you’d like to try out Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you are using. You can make this from the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a few minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You can choose how many instances you would like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can define the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose whether the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. Our platform will also set a port number for the connection. You will be able to switch off or to restart each instance separately, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven application running in a semi-dedicated server account, since the platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server hosting packages and you can add it with only several clicks. If you want to use it for several sites, you can enable more instances from the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The setup is as simple as entering the folder path to your .js file and selecting if Node.js should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make full use of Node.js even if you do not have any previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a user-friendly GUI that will permit you to restart and to stop any of your running instances, to get new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.
Node.js in VPS Web Hosting
All VPS web hosting services that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel offer Node.js by default and you can use this event-driven platform for each script-powered application that you host on the VPS. As we have not put a limit as to how many instances you can make use of, you can make use of the power of our VPS servers and mix it with the full potential of the Node.js platform. The setup is done via the Hepsia Control Panel’s user-friendly, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you are not technically experienced, you won’t have to deal with any obstacles while using the platform. You’ll only need to insert the directory path in the VPS account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. Furthermore, our system will also designate a port to access this file and you’ll be able to find it in the respective section in the Hepsia Control Panel. With just a click, you can see your applications’ output and to cancel or to restart any instance running on the server.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Node.js is available with all dedicated servers hosting on which our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter has a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface, so even if you have never used Node.js before, you can unleash its true potential in only a few easy steps. As soon as you have uploaded the app’s content, you will have to insert the path to the particular .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will set a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There is no restriction on the total amount of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll exert complete command over them through the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to terminate/restart existing ones, to see the output log for each app, and many others.
