Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time browser video games or instant messengers, for instance, and numerous corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
As Node.js is available on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your shared web hosting account and to use it for any web app that you’ve got, irrespective of which shared hosting package you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to order – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes after that, you can specify the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your web hosting account, as well as to pick the IP address to obtain access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to disable it if you don’t require it any longer. You will also be granted access to the output code with just a single click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The feature is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for different websites, you’ll be able to choose the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s intuitive graphical interface, you’ll have to specify the path to the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a random port to access your app and you will find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to stop/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed Linux VPS offered by us and you can configure it without any predicaments, even if you haven’t worked with it before, since Hepsia offers a simple-to-navigate, point-and-click GUI, which will allow you to do anything with no effort. The platform can be used for as many script-powered apps as you wish, so you can make the most of your websites by mixing the power of our servers with the performance provided by Node.js. You have to indicate the folder path to the .js file within your VPS account and to select if it will use a dedicated IP address or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. Accessing the file will be possible using a port number that our system will generate randomly when you add a new Node.js instance. The Hepsia Control Panel will grant you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to start, to cancel or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each app that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with your real-time, script-driven software apps at no additional fee in case you order one of our Linux dedicated hosting and pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page. The Node.js instances can be managed from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Node.js section via an easy-to-work-with interface, which will allow you to start/delete/restart any Node.js instance or to see the output of the app that uses it with just one mouse click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is add the directory path to the .js file and select the IP that will be used to access the file in question – a shared or a dedicated one. A randomly generated port number will be allocated automatically too and you’ll see the upsides of using Node.js instantly. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make use of the full potential of your applications and to enjoy the best possible performance.
