Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive browser-based games or live chat portals, for example, and plenty of companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it to your account and to utilize it for any web-based app that you’ve got, regardless of which cloud web hosting package you’ve selected upon signup. The Upgrades menu in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to select the number of instances that you want to use – this is the number of the web applications that will use Node.js. Several minutes afterwards, you’ll be able to indicate the path to the application, in other words where the .js file will be located in your shared account, as well as to choose the IP address to get access to that file – a dedicated IP or the server’s shared one. In the new Node.js menu that will show up in the Control Panel, you can restart an instance or to remove it if you do not require it anymore. You will also have access to the output code with just one mouse click.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support Node.js, so in case you wish to host any real-time application on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to use the power that Node.js can give you with just several mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for different web sites, you’ll be able to select the number of active instances, one instance being one app. Using Hepsia’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface, you will need to add the location of the .js file for every instance and to choose if Node.js will use a dedicated IP or the server’s shared IP. Our cloud platform will specify a randomly generated port to access your application and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to view the output of each of your applications or to deactivate/restart each instance independently.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js is available as standard with each virtual private server that comes with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and imposes no restrictions in regard to the number of websites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS packages a perfect option for building multiple real-time web apps and for making the most of each of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is intuitive enough even for individuals with no previous experience, so if you would like to set up Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a few mouse clicks to do it. You’ll only need to include the folder path to the given .js file and to choose if Node.js will use the server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also allocate a certain port that will be used to access the .js file. Right after that, you will be all set and will be able to take advantage of the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to view the apps’ output and to restart or to cancel any of your instances using fast-access controls.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is offered with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you will be able to make full use of this event-driven platform as soon as your machine is set up. Since Hepsia is quite easy to use, you will be able to make that without having to deal with any predicaments, even if you have never used the Node.js platform before, as everything that you will have to do on your end is enter the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other websites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our amazingly powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to stop it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the easy-to-work-with, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
