Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a signup form, the second any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s delivered to the server even if the other boxes 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 whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser video games or live chat clients, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Website Hosting
If you host a web app on our avant-garde cloud platform and you want to try out Node.js, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account irrespective of the website hosting plan that you’re using. This can be done from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this upgrade to the account. You’ll be able to choose how many instances you want to add to your account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will appear in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your web hosting account and choose if that file will be reachable via the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated one. Our system will also designate a port number for the connection. You will be able to deactivate or to reboot each instance independently, if needed.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support Node.js, so if you want to run any real-time application on our advanced cloud platform, you can make full use of the power that the system can give you with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so if you want to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you’ll be able to select the number of running instances, one instance being one application. Through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-use GUI, you’ll need to add the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our platform will assign a random port to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding Control Panel section. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to check the output of any of your applications or to delete/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to use the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered web applications at no extra cost if you get any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via an easy-to-use GUI, which will allow you to start/deactivate/restart any instance or to view the output of the app which uses it with just one click of the mouse. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you’ll be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to activate it is specify the directory path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared IP. A random port number will be allocated automatically too and you will see the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By combining Node.js with the power of our dedicated servers, you’ll be able to make the most of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
