Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need live interaction between a server and the Internet users and can substantially boost the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive browser-based video games or instant messaging systems, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting plans that we are offering support Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge event-driven platform to your hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will use Node.js at once, and you can activate as many instances as you like. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set the path to your .js app and to select if you will use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud system. What’s more, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js app or check the running instances’ output with just several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a quite user-friendly interface.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform offers, due to the fact that it is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the account management tool that comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server. In case you want to employ Node.js for different web-based applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you will have to insert the path to the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new menu that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also select if the access path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each and every instance that you order can be rebooted or discontinued separately and you can check the output of your apps with only a few mouse clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes bundled with all dedicated web hosting plans that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the event-driven platform once your dedicated machine is up and running. As Hepsia is pretty simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without the need to deal with any complications, even if you haven’t used Node.js before, since everything that you will need to do on your end is add the path to 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 one or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many Node.js instances as you wish on our extremely powerful machines and each of them can be managed separately – you will be able to start, to restart or to stop it, to see the output of the app using it, etc. This can be done via the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform effortlessly.
