Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need live communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site expands and there are numerous people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or online chat software, for example, and many companies, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting that we offer support Node.js and you will be able to add this advanced platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to select the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many separate sites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you need. Hepsia will also permit you to set the precise path to your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a random port number set by our cloud platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you have activated, modify the location of the .js application or check the output of the running instances with just a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel via a quite easy-to-navigate GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can make use of all the advantages that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, due to the fact that it’s is included with all our plans and you can add it to your account with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that comes with each semi-dedicated server. In case you’d like to use Node.js for multiple web applications, you can pick the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you’ll need to insert the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. This can be done in the new section that will show up in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and in the meantime, you can also choose whether the path to the specific application should go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP. Each instance that you order can be restarted or cancelled separately and you can view your apps’ output with just a few clicks.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of our dedicated servers for your script-based software applications and if you select the Hepsia Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no extra fee, since this event-driven platform is built into our in-house developed Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are exceptionally powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning performance even if you make use of plenty of Node.js instances at once. The setup takes a few clicks and Hepsia’s GUI will make it pretty easy for you to activate a new instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Specifying the .js file path and choosing a shared or a dedicated IP address will be everything that you will need to do on your end and as soon as our system has selected a port number to access the .js file, you’ll be all set. Any of the instances that you have activated can be rebooted or canceled independently and you’ll obtain access to an elaborate output log for each of the apps that use the Node.js platform.
