Node.js is an event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or online chat platforms, for example, and plenty of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a web application on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform and you’d like to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your account irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you use. You can make this from the Upgrades menu in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to your account. You can choose the number of instances that you wish to add to the account – one instance means one application using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can specify the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether that file will be accessible via the shared IP address of the physical server or via a dedicated one. Our platform will also assign a port for the connection. You’ll be able to terminate or to reboot each instance separately, if it’s needed.
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 platform comes bundled with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can add it with only a few clicks. If you want to use it for different Internet sites, you can create more instances via the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel. The setup is as simple as inserting the 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 make the most of Node.js even if you lack previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also designate a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the particular app. Hepsia has an easy-to-navigate graphical interface that will permit you to reboot and to deactivate any of your running instances, to create new ones or to view the output of your apps with just a click.
Node.js in Dedicated Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of this event-driven platform as soon as your dedicated machine is set up. Since the Hepsia Control Panel is incredibly simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any obstacles, even if you’ve never used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is indicate the path to the .js file that will use the 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 Internet sites. You can create as many instances as you wish on our super-powerful servers and each of them can be controlled separately – you will be able to start, to reboot or to remove it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this through the intuitive, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
