Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based games or online chat platforms, for instance, and many corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting plans that we offer come with Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate platforms/websites will make use of Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number assigned by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or check the output of the running instances with just several clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using a pretty simple-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer Node.js, so if you would like to run any real-time application on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can make use of the power that Node.js can offer you with only a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so in case you wish to use Node.js for multiple Internet sites, you will be able to pick the number of available instances, one instance being one application. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you will have to include the path to the .js file for each instance and to select whether Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Our cloud platform will set a randomly generated port number to access your app and you will see it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also permit you to see the output of each of your apps or to delete/reboot each instance independently.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is available with all dedicated web hosting plans on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a rather simple and easy-to-navigate interface, so even if you have never worked with Node.js before, you can take advantage of its full potential in just a couple of easy steps. Once you’ve uploaded the application’s content, you will need to indicate the path to the respective .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to pick the IP which they will use (shared or dedicated), while our system will choose a randomly generated port that will be used to access these files. There’s no limit as to the total number of Node.js instances that you can enable and use simultaneously and you will have full control over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to activate new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to review the output log for each app, and so on.
