Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site expands and there are numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat portals, for example, and many companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with each shared web hosting package offered by us, since the event-driven platform is present on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you would like to run. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you wish. A new section will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will have to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select whether the connection should proceed through the shared IP of the physical server or through a dedicated one. The controls inside Hepsia will also enable you to reboot or to shut down an instance and to view the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software app hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with only several mouse clicks. If you would like to use it for several web sites, you can activate more instances from the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as simple as entering the path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with similar software. Our system will also choose a random port that will be used to access the .js file associated with the particular app. Hepsia has a simple-to-use graphical interface that will permit you to restart and to terminate any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to view the output of your applications with just one single click.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software apps and if you select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order procedure, you’ll be able to make use of Node.js at no additional fee, since the platform is integrated into our in-house built tool. Since our dedicated servers are extremely powerful, you’ll enjoy superb results even if you run numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it amazingly easy for you to create a new Node.js instance even if you have little or no previous experience. Inserting the path to the .js file and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP will be everything that you’ll need to do on your end and once our system has designated a port number to access this file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or removed independently and you will get access to a comprehensive output log for each app that uses Node.js.
