Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the website grows bigger and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for instance, and lots of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
Node.js in Cloud Web Hosting
All Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering come with Node.js and you will be able to add this innovative event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia Control Panel. You can choose the number of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/websites will utilize Node.js at once, and you can run as many instances as you need. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to select the exact path to your .js app and to decide if you will use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port set by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve added, edit the location of the .js app or see the running instances’ output with only several clicks from your hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally simple-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can make use of all the benefits that the Node.js platform offers, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated packages and you are able to add it to your account with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you wish to employ Node.js for multiple web-based applications, you can select the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you will have to include the location of the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also select whether the path to the particular app will go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you add can be restarted or shut down independently and you can see the output of your apps with only a couple of clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js comes bundled with all Linux dedicated web hosting on which our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is installed. The latter offers a pretty intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so even if you have not used the Node.js platform before, you can unleash its full potential in only a few simple steps. As soon as you have uploaded the application’s content, you’ll have to specify the folder path to the specific .js files that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that they’ll use (dedicated or shared), whereas our system will choose a randomly generated port number that will be used to access the files in question. There isn’t any restriction on the total amount of Node.js instances that you can enable and run simultaneously and you’ll exert total command over them from the Hepsia Control Panel – you will be able to create new ones or to remove/restart existing ones, to check the output log for each app, etc.
