Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re a lot of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser video games or online chat portals, for instance, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting offered by us support Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to pick the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate platforms/sites will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you wish. The Hepsia Control Panel will also enable you to choose the precise path to your .js application and to choose whether you will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a random port number set by our cloud hosting system. Also, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve activated, change the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via an exceptionally easy-to-use GUI.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated services offer Node.js, so if you want to host any real-time app on our innovative cloud platform, you can take full advantage of the power that Node.js can offer you with just a couple of clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is upgradeable, so if you would like to use Node.js for multiple web sites, you will be able to choose the amount of active instances, one instance being one app. Through Hepsia’s intuitive interface, you will have to indicate the path to the .js file for each instance and to select if Node.js will use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Our platform will assign a randomly generated port number to access your app and you’ll find it in the corresponding section of the Control Panel. Hepsia will also enable you to see the output of each of your apps or to delete/restart each instance separately.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
Node.js comes with all Hepsia Control Panel-equipped Linux VPS hosting services that we are offering and you can configure it without having any problem, even if you haven’t used it beforehand, as the Hepsia Control Panel offers a simple-to-navigate, point & click interface, which will permit you to do anything with no effort. The Node.js platform can be used for as many script-driven apps as you want, so you can get the most out of your Internet sites by mixing the power of our virtual servers with the performance offered by the Node.js platform. You’ll have to specify the location of the .js file within your account and to select whether it will use a dedicated IP or your virtual machine’s shared IP and you’ll be all set. The file can be accessed using a port number that our system will set randomly when you activate a new Node.js instance. Hepsia will give you total control over all Node.js instances and, with only one mouse click, you’ll be able to start, to remove or to restart them, as well as to check the output of each application that uses the platform.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
Node.js is available with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make use of the platform once your physical server is set up. Since Hepsia is very user-friendly, you’ll be able to make that without encountering any problem, even if you’ve never worked with Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is add the location of the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other Internet sites. You can run as many Node.js instances as you need on our extremely powerful servers and each of them can be managed independently – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to remove it, to view the output of the application that uses it, etc. This can be done through the simple-to-use, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make the most of the power of the Node.js platform without any effort.
