Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site expands and there are plenty of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser-based games or online chat applications, for instance, and lots of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering support Node.js and you can add this leading-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many different websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to choose the precise location of your .js app and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port allocated by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or view the active instances’ output with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel using an incredibly easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-powered application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can add it with just a few clicks. If you’d like to use it for several websites, you can order more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as easy as specifying the folder path to your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can take advantage of Node.js even if you haven’t got any previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also assign a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the given app. Hepsia has an easy-to-use interface that will allow you to reboot and to delete any of your active instances, to create new ones or to check the output of your applications with just one single click.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to buy any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages for your script-driven software apps and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, as the platform is available in our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are amazingly powerful, you’ll enjoy excellent performance even if you manage lots of Node.js instances at once. The setup requires several clicks and Hepsia’s interface will make it incredibly easy for you to set up a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you’ll have to do yourself and as soon as our system has assigned a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued separately and you will be provided with access to an exhaustive output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
