Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or web-based chat clients, for example, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared plans that we are offering include Node.js and you can add this advanced event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many separate websites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can order as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to specify the exact location of your .js app and to decide if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port selected by our cloud platform. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, modify the location of the .js app or view the output of the running instances with only a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a truly simple-to-use GUI.
Node.js in VPS Servers
Node.js is included by default with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and involves no limitations regarding the number of Internet sites that can use it at any given moment. This makes our VPS plans an optimal choice for building multiple real-time web-based applications and for making the most of each of them. Hepsia is intuitive enough even for persons with no prior experience, so if you wish to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than several clicks of the mouse to do it. You will just need to specify the location of the specific .js file and to choose whether Node.js will use the server’s shared IP or a dedicated IP. Our platform will also specify a particular port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time apps. The Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to check the output of the apps and to restart or to delete any of your instances using quick-access buttons.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers on which our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty simple and user-friendly GUI, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you’ll be able to unleash its full potential in only a few easy steps. Once you have uploaded the application’s content, you will need to include the location of the given .js files that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address which they’ll use (dedicated or shared), while our system will designate a random port number that will be used to access these files. There’s no restriction as to the total number of instances that you can set up and run at the same time and you’ll have full command over them via the Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to get new ones or to delete/reboot existing ones, to revise the output log for each app, and many others.
