Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills in a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser-based video games or online chat programs, for instance, and lots of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
All Linux shared website hosting packages that we’re offering include Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to pick the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at the same time, and you can order as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also enable you to choose the path to your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port chosen by our cloud platform. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you have created, edit the path to the .js app or see the output of the running instances with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally simple-to-navigate graphical interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to use the full potential of Node.js with any app that you host on our cloud web hosting platform, since it is included with each and every semi-dedicated plan offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can administer your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you will need to do after that will be to indicate the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address if you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also assign a random port. When you have the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to view a given application’s output or to start/reboot/shut down any of the instances that you’ve created.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered software applications at no extra charge in case you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/terminate/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the application that uses it with only one mouse click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to activate it is specify the folder path to the .js file and pick the IP that will be used to access the latter – a shared or a dedicated IP. A randomly generated port number will be designated automatically too and you’ll see the benefits of running Node.js momentarily. By combining the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your applications and to get the best achievable performance.
