Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable apps that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can significantly improve the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills a registration form, the moment any info is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change when the website expands and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or live chat systems, for example, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of Node.js with every cloud website hosting package offered by us, since the platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an active shared account with a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can choose the number of instances that you would like to add. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your account as you want. A new menu will show up in the Control Panel shortly after that and to begin using Node.js, you’ll need to enter the path to the .js file that will use it and to select whether the connection will proceed through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to restart or to deactivate an instance and to view the output of any given application.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to make use of the full capacity of Node.js with any Internet application that you host on our cloud hosting platform, as it is available with each semi-dedicated package offered by our company. You can specify the number of instances, or applications that can use Node.js, from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your semi-dedicated server. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to define the path to the .js file that will use Node.js within the account and to pick the IP address that will be used to access that file. You can choose a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IPs. Our platform will also choose a randomly generated port number. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to see a given application’s output or to start/restart/shut down any of the instances that you’ve added.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use Node.js with your real-time, script-powered web apps at no additional charge if you order any of our dedicated servers and choose the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface, which will permit you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to see the output of the application which uses it with only one click. Even if you’re not very experienced, you will be able to make use of the platform, as all you have to do to activate it is enter the folder path to the .js file and choose the IP address that will be used to access the file in question – a dedicated or a shared one. A randomly generated port will be allocated automatically as well and you will see the advantages of using Node.js momentarily. By mixing the Node.js platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to make the most of the full capacity of your apps and to enjoy the best conceivable performance.
